Another young soldier killed by Boko Haram
Another young Nigerian soldier, Lt. Ibrahim Haruna, has been killed by the Boko Haram sect while fighting for his fatherland.
The sad incident which saw Lt. Haruna killed by the sect, took place in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, on Sunday, 8 February, 2015, in what is now becoming a pattern where young soldiers are sent to the war front without adequate weapons to tackle the fully prepared insurgents.
According to friends of the late Haruna, he was in a team that was ambushed by the sect and in a fierce battle, he was gunned down alongside other soldiers.
Lt. Haruna left behind a young family consisting of his wife and a two-old son.
In the past few years, the dreaded sect have succeeded in killing many promising military officers including the ranks and file.
May their souls rest in peace.
