The incident was confirmed by the Spokesman of the Guards Brigade, Captain Godfrey Anebi Abakpa. He further disclosed that troops were searching the area to fish out the terrorists in case they are hiding there. Those killed were lieutenant Ibrahim Suleiman and Captain Samuel Attah.

The two slain officers hailed Kogi State. While Suleiman was the son of Col Suleiman Ahmodu Babanawa (rtd) who hailed from Okpo in Olamaboro LGA of the state, Attah was from Ibaji local government of Kogi State in the North Central part of Nigeria.
