Speaking when a delegation from an NGO named “Nigerian Fallen Heroes Project 2017”, paid her and her family members a condolence visit at her parents home in Kaduna, yesterday, Hajia Sambira said it was unfortunate that her husband left her when their children, Fatimah Abu-Ali 7, Mohammed Abu-Ali 4, and Yasmin Abu-Ali 1 were still young.
“My children are very aware that their father is no more, I mean the older ones. All I have to do now is to commit myself to raising them to the quality that their late father desired of them, so that they can be like him; to become persons this country can be proud of. It is unfortunate that he left them at such tender ages. But they will always recall that he was a kind and loving father. Just like he was to me. I don’t have anything more to say than everything is in the hands of the Almighty Allah”she said.
Col Abu-ALi who died alongside 6 other soldiers, has been buried at the National Military Cemetery in Abuja.
