Umaru Abdul-Ganimu, an aircraft man, who is part of the soldiers fighting insurgents in North-East Nigeria, was killed by the blade of an Air Force helicopter.
The incident happened on Saturday in the Bama area of Borno State.
The ACM was said to be passing through the side of the functioning rotor when the blade hit his head which led to his instant death.
ACM Abdul-Ganimu has since been buried at the Maimalari Military Cemetery in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.
