Another young soldier has been felled by the Boko Haram sect.

Another young Nigerian soldier, Charles Victor Uchenna Ilo, has lost his life in the fight to dislodge the dreaded Boko Haram sect from parts of the country where they have been holding sway.

The young chap who was from Enugu State, was killed in a fierce battle to recapture the town of Monguno in Borno State.

According to his close friends, Ilo was described as a gallant combatant who loved the country with a passion and had prayed for its unity at all times.

Aside that, the young man was described as very religious with a deep faith in God, and always prayed each operation.

His last Facebook post was on February 14, 2015, Valentine's Day and it read:

“Well, nothing more 2say,we are going back 2 recapture our ‪#‎monguno base 2day. I must fullfill my vow 4my country…my faith is one and ever! THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA.”

May his soul rest in peace.
