Nana Khadija, the youngest child of Lt Col Umar slain last month by Boko Haram, turns one today. This fallen hero of Nigeria has sadly missed the one year birthday of his beautiful daughter after passing away on the battlefield.
Umar and Nana
It would be recalled that prior to his demise, B.U. Umar was a lieutenant colonel and commanding officer of 114 TF Battalion of the Nigerian Army. He was ambushed alongside his troops last month between Bita and Piridang.
Reports have it that his vehicle stepped on an improvised explosive device, but was not hurt. He had come out to assess the damage on the vehicle when Boko Haram opened fire and killed him in the process.
This incident had occurred when these soldiers were said to be on their way to Yola in Adamawa State from Bita in Borno State.
Happy birthday to Nana Khadija, the youngest child of slain Lt Col Umar!
