Celestine Nwabueze made a choice when he stayed back to assist the Muslim woman who was in labour at one of the worst times possible and for that, she named her son after him.

Sharing photos of himself cradling the new born, Nwabueze wrote:

"This were I respect women so much, this child was born at my back when those idiots wants to attack the villagers, despite the fear, the mother stood still and endure the pain and with the help of the old women at the village, she had a safe delivery. The woman wants to name the child after me, but due to am a Christian and she is not, I have to give her a name Abukar that's in Igbo, it's Ebuka.

"Look at the mother at my back smiling at us, this one is Amina Ali."
