Military Officer Shot Dead Just One Week To His Wedding



Unknown gunmen have killed one Navy personnel called Faruk Yusuf who was deployed to Onitsha, Anambra State.
Confirming the demise of the Navy Officer, the police said that Yusuf was preparing to tie the knot with his betrothed next week..

“Yusuf was posted to Onitsha in Anambra State amidst all the unrest in that region. He was preparing to tie the knot next week with his betrothed but his life was cut short by gunmen who waylaid him in Onitsha.

The late Yusuf hailed from Unguwan Sarki area of Biu LGA in Borno State. There is tension as the military could embark on raids and reprisal arrests and torture and even killing. The situation in Onitsha is palpable because the military is going to strike back. The activities of the rampaging gunmen need to be curtailed.

Killing someone just a week before his wedding is indeed very agonising and condemnable. This is a moment of great agony for the relatives, friends and family of the deceased. May his soul rest in perfect peace.” he said
