Burial ceremony of Nigeria soldier, Major Chinedu Oji, killed at Azia community in the Ihiala local government area of Anambra State by Unknown Gunmen has been scheduled to hold on October 21, 2022.
A burial poster made available by Amakom Amakom, who introduced himself as a friend of the Army Major, indicated that the Soldier died at the age of 53.
“Continue to Rest in Peace my good friend Major Chinedu .C. Oji Ezigbo Mmadu Na Agulu).
“20th August 2022 remains a regrettable day. You lost your life along Ihiala /Azia Axis (Unknown gunmen).
“We never knew that your life will be taken this way Nwannem but as human we are, we have to take it the way it came . Everyone is on transit. The vanity of human existence”, Amakom Amakom said via his Facebook post on Wednesday.
It would be recalled that Unknown Gunmen in August, 2022 attacked and killed Major Chinedu Oji.
Early information indicated that Major Chinedu Oji was bombed to death while in operation, to dislodge the unknown gunmen at their camps in Azia area.
Military authority is yet to issue statement over his death despite wide media attention the news of his death generated.
Security sources said the Army Major was not killed while in operation, rather, he was on a private visit to the Azia area when the Unknown Gunmen noticed, and killed him.
Security sources said the Army Major was alone on the visit, and probably visited the area without seeking advice from men of the Nigerian Army deployed to Ihiala local government area for the special operations against Unknown Gunmen.
