TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. — Airman 1st Class Godspower Igben, 507th Force Support Squadron food operations specialist, attained his U.S. citizenship in an Oklahoma City courthouse Feb. 22, 2019. Igben was raised in Lagos, Nigeria, and moved to the U.S. when he was 22 years old. Igben’s family members served in the Nigerian military, inspiring him to join the U.S. Air Force Reserve. Wingmen within his unit attended the citizenship ceremony in a show of support as Igben became a U.S. citizen.
