The identities of some of the Brigade Guards killed in a terrorist ambush in Abuja have been made public.
On Sunday night, a captain and two soldiers were killed by terrorists in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) neighborhood of Bwari.
According to reports, the deceased officers—who were members of the Presidential Guards Brigade—were ambushed after they went to the Nigeria Law School in Bwari in response to a distress call from the school’s administration.
It was claimed that the school administration was informed that terrorists had dropped a note warning of an impending attack.
Captain Godfrey Anebi Abakpa, a spokesman for the Guards Brigade, confirmed the incident to Daily Trust while also stating that troops were already scouring the area to make sure no terrorists were hiding out there.
The Kogi State natives Lieutenant Ibrahim Suleiman and Captain Samuel Attah were slain in the ambush, according to information obtained by Daily Trust.
Col. Suleiman Ahmodu Babanawa was the father of Suleiman (rtd). He was from Okpo, which is a local government area in Olamaboro. Late Attah was from the state’s Ibaji local government.
In the meantime, condolence messages have been flooding in for the family of the killed servicemen.
People who are grieving the loss of Col. Babanawa’s son have been flocking to his family home in Okpo, Olamaboro LGA.
Before retiring, the grieving father reportedly made his mark in the Nigerian Army.
