The army broke the news of the killing of the 35-year-old soldier by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State to the family after one year he has been killed.

It was learnt that Musa, with the service number 14NA/71/1222, was in Supply and Transport unit of the army.

Before they received the sad news, City Round learnt that the family had lost communication with him since, a development that threw his wife and four-year-old daughter into confusion.

The family’s apprehension was heightened by the attack on 157 Battalion in Metele in northern Borno where scores of soldiers were killed by terrorists.

The army reportedly denied deaths of over 100 soldiers in the attack and only confirmed 23 casualties.

In the wake of the attacks, Musa’s wife, Sherifat, said she contacted him on the telephone to know if he was save but could not reach him.

She stated, “We usually chatted on WhatsApp but since then, I was unable to reach him. We called some of his bosses that we know and they assured us that there was no problem. They said if there was any issue, they would have informed them from the headquarters in Abuja. They said they sent signals to Maiduguri but did not receive any information which means there was no problem.

“It was after a year they contacted his brother, who is his next of kin, and told him he was dead. They said he was killed during an attack.
