Subsequent calls to his phone two hours later were neither answered nor returned.
Usman had said in a statement on Tuesday that troops of the 82 Division Task Force Battalion attached to 26 Task Force Brigade carried out clearance operations in some villages. Another assault Thursday, an ambush against troops on patrol, killed three more soldiers.
