Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Director Army Public Relations, said in a statement on Saturday, painfully adding that a senior officer, Brigadier General Dzarma Zirkusu, and three soldiers paid the supreme price in the process.
"Sadly, a gallant senior officer Brigadier General Dzarma Zirkusu and three soldiers paid the supreme sacrifice in a very rare diplay of gallantry as they provided reinforcement in a  counter offensive against the terrorists, and successfully defended the location. The family of the senior officer  and soldiers have been contacted. 

"The Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen Faruk Yahaya deeply commiserates with the families and relations of the fallen heroes. He has also directed that the troops continue in the ferrocious counter offensive and hot pursuit to eliminate the remnant of the fleeing terrorists," he stated.
