‘Nigeria Didn’t Deserve You,’ Fiancee Of Soldier Killed In Shiroro Ansaru Terrorists’ Attack Mourns

Aisha Yusuf, fiancee of one of the soldiers killed in the Shiroro attack in Niger State by Ansaru terrorists last Wednesday has taken to Facebook to pay tributes to her fiance, lamenting that Nigeria didn’t deserve him.

In the emotional post titled ‘My heart is pained’, on her facebook handle, Yusuf revealed that the pain was unbearable and didn’t know how to recover from the sorrowful event.

“I lost the love of my life on Wednesday in Shiroro, Niger State. My friend, my lover… My heartbeat, my fiancee…the man who changed my strong view on inter-cultural marriage. I still can’t believe that my baby is gone. Where do I start from? Where do I pick up from?

“People said I should take it easy that God has a plan but I can’t even understand why God allowed such to happen. He was diligent. He was honest and hardworking. He was a good man, A God-fearing man who loved his family and his country that he gave his life for that cause,” she wrote.

Yusuf noted that even in the midst of the turmoil, she was hopeful that the country would rise again.

She added, “Nigeria didn’t deserve you baby. Now I know how other wives who lost their husbands to terrorists feel. It’s a pain that is unbearable…cannot be described. Please the family and I need your prayers… This is difficult for all of us but we believe God has a reason.

“In the midst of all these killings, Nigeria will rise again. My baby’s death will not be for nothing…. Rest well Obim..I love you and I’d always love you.”

Recall that at least 22 soldiers, seven police operatives amongst other people were reportedly killed Wednesday during attacks by terrorists in Niger and Taraba states.

Fifteen soldiers were killed in Niger and seven in Taraba in an ambush while properties were also destroyed.

Hundreds of security operatives have been killed since 2009 when the Boko Haram insurgency started, and later compounded by banditry.
