The war being waged by the insurgent Boko Haram sect in some northern parts of the country has claimed yet another life, as a young soldier of the Nigerian Army who was posted to Borno State just five days earlier, was killed on 30 January, 2015, in the mindless attack by the group.

The young man, Al-amin Yols, was serving in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, before he was posted to Maiduguri and just as he was settling down, he was felled by the Boko Hram sect.

According to his friends, the Kano State born fallen soldier was full of life and and very lively and had lots of friends and was looking forward to a better Nigeria.

According to some of his Facebook posts, Yols who had also served in Lagos for many years before being posted to Port Harcourt, had so many friends. Some of his friends took to his page to pay their last respects to the fallen hero.
