He said that four other soldiers sustained various degrees of injury during the encounter.

He said, “It will be recalled that because of the late senior officer’s exceptional bravery and gallantry, he was given an accelerated promotion from the rank of Major to Lieutenant Colonel and was decorated by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai, at Gamboru Ngala on Sept. 9, 2015, during an operational visit.”

Usman, however, said that the troops recovered one General Purpose Machine Gun, seven AK-47 rifles and a large quantity of ammunition.
