A member of the House of Representatives, Shina Peller, has promised to provide free education for the daughter of a fallen Iseyin-born soldier, Ismail Ojeke, who died on the 5th of January while fighting insurgents in the North East Zone.
Ojeke was recruited into the Nigerian Army in 2019 and died on the 5th of January 2020 during a battle with insurgents in Borno.

Peller, who represents the Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa Federal Constituency, made the promise when he visited the family of the late hero in Iseyin on Wednesday.
Shina Peller said: “I share your pain and my thoughts and mind are with you and your entire family members in this very difficult time; I can’t console you enough, only God can.
“I want to appeal that we keep praying to God to overlook his sins and accept his coming. It’s indeed a dark moment for all of us here in Iseyin and indeed Oyo State,”
Shina Peller then promised to take up the full responsibility for the education of Hannat, who is the only child of the late soldier.
Shina noted that the child will receive the best of education up to the university level at no expense to the family members.
