Lion in the jungle: Alhaji Adegboyega Adebayo Yeosa By Anago James Akeem Osho

‘’Akeem, I can never forget the beautiful memories of Burma, even though I was fighting a war. The people, the kindness, and the lovely Burmese woman I met who
became pregnant. Their soldiers, valiant soldiers, we fought side by side against the enemies. The picture will forever remain in my memory. Go to Burma, find my child and greet the people for me’’.
                                                                             Adegboyega Adebayo, 1921-2011
(Hero of Second World War 1939-1945. Campaigns including actions, medals and special act of gallantry include: 4TH BURMA, 1939/45 STAR, and BURMA STAR. Regimental number NA 37685).

Alhaji Alimi Adegboyega Adebayo made this statement to me in his house at Omi Adio, in the outskirt of Ibadan in 1996, at the age of 75years, on my way from Offa,Kwara state to Moloney Street, EbuteMetta East, Lagos, Nigeria.
