Over 40 terrorists died in the encounter, while 4 soldiers lost their lives, and an additional 9 were wounded.

A statement by the Director of Defense Information/Coordinator Joint Tax Force, Major General Chris Olukolade, on Friday says that more  than 16 rifles, and a substantial number of assorted calibers of ammunition was found.


In addition, Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) materials, SIM Cards, and other electronic items were also recovered.
