A Nigerian Navy officer, Empire Okorie, on Thursday took to his Facebook page to mourn the death of Lieutenant Akinwale Christopher Oguntoye, who was killed when Boko Haram members attacked Magumeri town in Borno.

Reports said the militants on Wednesday ambushed Lieutenant 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.

Reacting to the news of Oguntoye’s death, Okorie described the late soldier as “a man with a strong personality”, adding the ultimate price he paid would not be in vain.

Okorie also shared the last chat he had with Oguntoye before the news of his death.

Before his death Lt. Oguntoye was a member of the 60 Regular Course cadets of the Nigerian Defence Academy.

He was briefly an Aide De Camp to a former President of Guinea-Bissau.
