The Ghanaian graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) who joined ISIS terror group has been reportedly killed.
Sources close to the family of Mohammed Nazir Nortei Alema told the Finder newspaper that the final funeral rites, Adua in Islam were held on Sunday, March 21.
Nazir who joined the terror group in August 2015 was reportedly killed in the Syrian city of Homs. Sheik Abdul Rahman, the former Chief Imam of London who named Nazir at birth , led the Adua prayers held in Osu, where the family of the deceased lives. The family got the news of his demise through another Ghanaian ISIS recruit identified as Mr Yusif, a graduate of the University of Mines in Prestea.
The news of Nazir joining ISIS caused an uproar on the campus. Students were shocked because his demeanour never showed him as someone with the slightest inclination to violence. Shortly after he left, Nazir reportedly sent a message to his family informing them about his decision to join ISIS after completing a one-year National Service with the Ghana Statistical Service.
