No fewer than two officers and 22 soldiers were wounded in the clash troops had with Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State on Monday.

Available information has it that the soldiers have since been evacuated to the hospital for treatment.

This runs contrary to reports that the troops suffered massive casualty during the encounter of the 113 Battalion located in Kareto, the northern part of Borno State with the terrorists.

The troops were attacked at their location by Boko Haram terrorists said to be bearing heavy and superior arms in the wee hours of Monday.

It took several hours for the troops to subdue the terrorists.

The Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, said the wounded soldiers have been evacuated to the Military Hospital in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, where they are receiving treatment.
