Pictured is General is Brigadier General Cecilia U. Akagu and her husband Brigadier General Clifford B. Wanda. They are Nigeria’s first married army officers to attain the same rank of Brigadier General. Brigadier General Akagu is from Ankpa in Kogi State while her husband is from Enugu Ngwo in Enugu State.
