One Year Remembrance Prayer For The Hero, Abu Ali

The family of late Lt. Col. Abu Ali, the Nigerian hero and a nightmare of Boko-Haram insurgents, who was unfortunately killed in the battle field in the war against Boko-Haram terrorists, have concluded plans to hold a one year remembrance prayer in honor of their late son on the anniversary of his demise.



Recall that Late Lt. Col. Muhammad Abu Ali was amongst the gallant officers deployed to the North-East of Nigeria ravaged by Boko Haram terrorists and he fought for the glory of his country,  laying down his life in defense of his country, Nigeria.

In a statement signed by the late Lt. Col.’s father, the Etsu Bassa Nge Kingdom, Brigadier General Abu Ali (rtd) said their son paid the supreme prize by confronting the Boko Haram terrorists in a fierce battle between the military and the insurgents in Mallam Fatori town, North of Borno State at about 10:00pm on Friday November 4, 2016.


According to the statement, “He had premonition of his death when he was quoted as saying: ‘Gentlemen, stay alert and be alive and be prayerful. I don’t want any of my soldiers to be injured or lose his life in this operation and if at all someone may go down, let me be the one’.


Few hours after his death, the condolence message of President Muhammadu Buhari described the late Lt. Col. Muhammad Abu Ali as an extra-ordinary officer who inspired respect and adoration among those he commanded. The President said the sacrifices by the late colonel and other fallen officers and men in the war against terrorism in Nigeria would never go in vain.

“President Buhari’s message delivered at the burial ceremony stated that the late Col. Abu Ali and the other officers and men showed unalloyed commitment to the common good of all Nigerians. “Their sacrifice, patriotism and indeed gallantry would surely not go in vain”.
“Sarkin Yaki” in Hausa language, which means ‘front line General’, you and your men have fought a good fight”. The Etsu recalled the pronouncement of the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai at the burial ceremony of late Lt. Col. Abu Ali and other six fallen soldiers in Abuja.

“He said for the fact that Mohammed Abu Ali was always telling his men to stay alert and stay alive, he would always be alive in the memories of Nigerians.
We at ArewaWatch pray that his soul rest in absolute and perfect peace.
