During the attack 7 Boko Haram gun trucks, water tanker and other equipment like arms and ammunition and ration where destroyed, other vehicles were abandoned and have been recovered by troops.

Several terrorists were neutralized, with some burnt beyond recognition. As at the time of issuing this Press Release, MNJTF troops were in pursuit of fleeing terrorists.
