Adamu Isah, a Nigerian soldier has been killed by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.
This is coming eight months after his cousin, Abdullahi Bhuwa Usman, a Lieutenant in the army, was also killed by the insurgents.
SaharaReporters had reported how Usman, who just got married was killed on January 29, when the terrorists engaged the Nigerian military in a four-hour battle to take control of Dikwa.
“I received the news of Usman's death with deep shock. He just got married on December 27, 2020. I attended the wedding here in Lagos,” a source had told SaharaReporters
"Though he wasn't in attendance physically (at the wedding) because he was on duty, his family members and friends were all here and left with the wife for Borno State that same day.”
A family source told SaharaReporters on Tuesday that Usman’s cousin, Adamu Isah, was among the 25 soldiers killed by some Boko Haram elements in Monguno area on September 16, 2021.
Monguno is North about 70km drive from Maiduguri the state capital and hosted thousands of IDPs mostly from Dikwa and Marte council areas.
“It’s so sad, losing two family members to Boko Haram within eight months. Both were gallant soldiers. We are yet to recover from the lost of Usman, now it’s Adamu. They are great sons of Margi from Adamawa state,” a family source told SaharaReporters.
