His death was especially painful to many because he was supposed to get married to a certain lady named Alheri Ganya Bissa.

Their wedding was supposed to take place on Saturday, April 20, in Kebbi State. In honouring the memory of his death, a statement has been released by the army through Sagir Musa, its spokesperson.

“The attackers barricaded a major road into the town and laid an ambush in the adjoining built-up areas from where they opened fire on our unsuspecting troops when they attempted to remove the barricade. “The gallant troops fought their way through the siege and in the process killed six of the assailants. However, we lost a lieutenant in the encounter

“Preliminary investigation indicated that one Roland Sekibo, – the Chairman Akuku Toru LGA, Omodo – the CSO Akuku Toru LGA and Kenneth of Kula currently at large were the masterminds of the unexpected/ unprovoked attack. “To this end, the NA strongly hereby states that perpetrators of this ambush will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”
