Wife, children of Justice Uwais' son who joined ISIS detained after returning to Nigeria


The first wife of Ibrahim Uwais, a son of former Chief Justice Mohammed Uwais who was killed near Aleppo, Syria, by US forces, has been detained by agents of the Department of State Security (DSS) after she and her children returned to Nigeria.


Halima and her two children returned to Nigeria via Turkish Airlines, on Friday. Ibrahim Uwais' second wife remains in Syria with three of her kids. The second wife is believed to be the more radical of Ibrahim Uwais' two wives. .

Halima and her children have been detained by the Department of State Security pending an investigation into their sojourn in Syria. Ibrahim Uwais secretly traveled to Syria in February 2015 to join extremist Islamist terror group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). He became one of the numerous Islamist terrorists who perished when US forces targeted members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria in fierce airstrikes.
