Nigerian Army Lieutenant AC Oguntoye, was killed in Boko Hraram attack in Magumeri town, Borno State on Wednesday, March 15th.
The militants ambushed Lieutenant Akinwale Christopher Oguntoye and his colleagues on their way to Gubio from a shooting range competition in Monguno.
The officers were pinned down by terrorists in Magumeri where they razed down houses, including a police station in the town. Lt. Akinwale was a member of the 60 Regular Course cadets of the Nigerian Defence Academy and was briefly an Aide De Camp to a former President of Guinea-Bissau.
The militants rode into the area in 10 utility vehicles, shooting and attacking military formations. A press release from the Nigerian police stated that a police Sergeant Haliru Aliyu was also killed in the attack while another sustained leg injury from gunshots.
A friend of late Akinwale took to Facebook to mourn him and share the last chat he had with him before the news of his death.
