Czech government offers scholarship to the wife of Air Force officer killed by Boko Haram



In the spirit of the existing cordial relationship between the Czech Republic and the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), the Czech Republic Government has offered a postgraduate scholarship to Dr (Mrs) Hedima, the wife of late Wing Commander Chinda Stephen Hedima to study Epidemiology at the Czech Defence University, Prague.


Chinda was killed in September 2014 by the Boko Haram Terrorists while on operation in Northeast Nigeria. The senior officer, before his demise, had his combat simulator training on the Alpha Jet with Aero Vodochody in the Czech Republic. The full scholarship was in recognition of the ultimate sacrifice by her husband.
