He also called urged government to specifically set aside a day in 2015 to honour the dead soldiers with awards as a way of boosting the morale of other soldiers.
Onwubiko urged Yobe Government to improve on its health facilities to enable them to cope with emergency cases such as the recent bomb blast in Potiskum.
"This could ease medical personnel to handle emergency cases like the unfortunate spate of violent terrorism targeting civilians in the area.
"Government should train the Nigerian military and provide them with the enabling environment to combat the insurgents effectively.
"A national monument with their names engraved should also be constructed in any part of Nigeria to remind generations yet unborn of the enormous sacrifice rendered by these soldiers,” he further urged.
