Members of Atani community, in Ogbaru Local Government Area of Anambra State, where Victor Uzoka hailed from, took to Facebook to mourn him.
“Rest in peace a gallant soldier, Ebuka ezogbo onye Atatni. Boko Haram have cut a promising life short, We all cry for this loss. Jee nke oma nwanne” a member of the community wrote.

“Anyanwu aka 68 Rsm, we were side by side in Maiduguri then on a particular movement and all you were doing that day was preaching and quoting the Bible for me. You demise really pain me. Rest on brother till we meet to part no more” Hassan wrote.
