When Major General Edward Buba, Director of Defence Media Operations, provided a breakdown of casualties in the August 14, 2023, helicopter evacuation crash and ambush of troops in Niger State, he made this point clear.

 The breakdown was presented at the Defense Media Operations' biweekly briefing.

He reiterated that an investigation is still ongoing to ascertain the reason of the helicopter accident when questioned about it. He also urged residents to be aware of terrorist propaganda and to be patriotic.

Some valiant Nigerian Army soldiers paid the ultimate price after insurgents ambushed them in the state's Zungeru region.

In addition, a Nigerian Air Force MI-171 helicopter that was on a mission to evacuate injured people crashed on Monday in the state's Shiroro Local Government Area (LGA).
