Ibrahim Uwais, a son of former Chief Justice Mohammed Uwais, was on Monday killed near Aleppo, Syria as the United States targeted members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in fierce airstrikes.
According to reports, the late Ibrahim Uwais, who secretly travelled to Syria in February 2015 to join ISIS, was one of numerous Islamist terrorists who were decimated as US military aircraft bombarded known ISIS camps near the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.
“Ibrahim died today on the battlefield in Aleppo,” a source stated.
He added that one of the two wives of the deceased currently trapped in Syria might notify the family of his death.
According to the news portal, Uwais left Nigeria in 2015 with his two wives and five kids, telling close family members he was headed to Turkey to explore business opportunities.
