Ibrahim Uwais, the son of former Chief Justice of Nigeria, Mohammed Uwais, was killed yesterday near Aleppo, Syria as the United States battled members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in fierce airstrikes.
According to a source who spoke with SaharaReporters, the late Ibrahim Uwais, who secretly traveled to Syria in February 2015 to join ISIS, was one of the numerous Islamist terrorists who perished as the US military aircraft bombarded known ISIS camps near the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.
The source said: “Ibrahim died today on the battlefield in Aleppo.” He added that one of the two wives of the deceased currently trapped in Syria might notify the family of his death.
It was gathered that Ibrahim Uwais left Nigeria in 2015, told his close family members he was headed to Turkey to explore business opportunities. When he left, he took along his two wives and five kids.
However, he slipped from Turkey into Syria with his entire family to join the fast growing army of volunteer ISIS fighters.
