The deputy director, Army Public Relations, Sector 3, Col Ezindu Idimah, said that during the firefight that ensued, the insurgents were overpowered and several of them neutralised.

Other items recovered include some quantities of 12.7 millimetre ammunitions, 7.62 millimetre ammunitions, magazines, links and Bandolier jackets.
