Abuja - A son of former Chief Justice of the Federation, Justice Mohammed Uwais, who joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has been killed.
Ibrahim Uwais was killed on Monday after the United States launched air-strikes on members of the group in Aleppo, Syria.
Ibrahim Uwais, who secretly traveled to Syria in February 2015 to join ISIS, was one of numerous Islamist terrorists who perished as US military aircraft bombarded known ISIS camps near the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.

Ibrahim left Nigeria in 2015, telling close family members he was headed to Turkey to explore business opportunities.
He took along his two wives and five kids.
However, he slipped from Turkey into Syria with his entire family and joined the burgeoning army of volunteer fighters who travel from different parts of the world to enlist with ISIS.
