Dino Melaye condoles with father of soldier reportedly killed in terrorists ambush in Abuja
Former Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has condoled with Colonel Babanawa on the death of his son, Lieutenant Ibrahim Jaro Suleiman Babanawa, a Nigerian soldier killed when terrorists ambushed troops of the Guards Brigade in Abuja.
According to Daily Trust, two soldiers and a Captain were killed by terrorists during the attack which occurred in the Bwari area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on Sunday night.
The captain and the two soldiers were attached to the 7 Guards Brigade of the Nigerian Army.
The soldiers were ambushed after they visited the Nigeria Law School in Bwari following a distress call from the authorities of the school. The school management was said to have alerted that terrorists had dropped a letter indicating an imminent attack on the school, the report says.
Taking to his official Facebook page, Melaye said Nigeria is no longer the country it used to be.
“My condolence to Col Babanawa for the loss of his son a Nigerian soldier who was ambushed with his colleagues by Bandits and kiiled around Bwari yesterday. May his soul rest in peace. This country is not the country we know anymore. Inside FCT ooooo” he wrote.
