“He was a compassionate leader, mentor, and fine military officer, he retired from the service in 2015, even in retirement, the ACM was full of energy and obviously had a lot to offer upcoming officers from his wealth of experience.”

In his remarks, the Chief of Air Staff (CAS) Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar said “The loss of this professional and patriotic gentleman must spur the rest of us in not only in the armed forces but indeed in Nigeria to rededicate ourselves in the service of our nation and our people to deal decisively with crime and criminality.”

The funeral was attended by Badeh’s widow and children.
