Friends and family of a young Nigerian man, Yashim Elisha, who was one of the seven Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) officers killed by bandits in Kaduna State, have taken to social media to mourn his tragic demise.
Bandits reportedly ambushed Yashim and six other officers of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Monday, January 9 at the Kuriga mining site in the Birnin Gwari Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The NSCDC Director of Public Relations, Olusola Odumosu, who confirmed the incident in a statement said the officers were attached to the Kaduna State Ministry of Mines and were on official duty at the Kuriga mining site when the incident happened.
However, one of Yashim’s friends, who took to Facebook to mourn him in a quite touching post, revealed he just joined the defence corps in 2022.
“Life means nothing, a brother got a job civil defense corps last year yesterday bandit’s shot him to death and d person in question has no parents his siblings depends on him. he didn’t last a year in the job yet some think life is fear. life choose who to be fear too.
