He was killed alongside four other soldiers during a gun battle with the insurgents in Dikwa, Borno state on Friday, January 29.

 

New details revealed that Usman got married on January 27, two days before he was killed, though he wasn’t physically present.

 

“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. Though he wasn’t in attendance physically because he was on duty, his family members and friends were all here and left with the wife to Borno State that same day.

I still spoke with him last week and told him to take care of his wife. It’s just so sad. He was so jovial and caring” a family member of the deceased told SaharaReporters
