Baghdad ( Death did not give much time to an Iraqi young boy to take up his first job after years of suffering due to his problematic name: Osama bin Laden.

Having spent much of his life indoors due to persecution over his name, young Osama Bin Laden, officially assuming a new name, died of an electric shock on his way out of home for a first day in work on Wednesday, according to Shafaq News.

His father had named him after the late al-Qaeda leader when he was born one year before the ouster of Saddam Hussein’s regime in a United States invasion in 2003.

He was due to receive a new identity card with the name “Ahmed Hussein”  from the civil registry in Baghdad next Sunday.

U.S. forces killed Bin Laden during a raid on his home in Pakistan’s Abbottabad in 2011.
