Efforts deployed for the Nigerian Army parachute Independence Day stunts failed to pay off as everything went south when the soldiers attempted to land at their marked spots.
The parachute stunts were truly horrible to watch as they started quite interesting until the time when they needed to land.
Onlookers feared for their lives and hoped that the Nigerian Army practising the routines would not die in the process.

Videos that trended on different social media platforms captured how some of the soldiers were unable to land properly, as they descended from the skies.
Some crash-landed on top of trees, while others smashed their bodies against parked cars, and a couple of soldiers veered off to various unscheduled destinations.
Just a few got the task of landing at the Abuja secretariat right, and concerned Nigerians had to start inquiring about the physical wellbeing of the soldiers to know if they were alright or sustained various degrees of injuries even before Independence Day.
