Zulum paid the soldiers a visit on Monday where he used the opportunity to reward them with N5 million.
Zulum also consoled all of the injured soldiers at Maimalari Barracks in Maiduguri.
Brig Gen. Abdulwahab Eyitayo, the Army’s General Officer Commanding 7 Division, welcomed him.
The Governor ordered the release of N5 million, which was immediately distributed to all soldiers admitted, including those who had nothing to do with the Kala-Balge battle.
Governor Zulum thanked the soldiers and commended them for their gallantry and patriotism.
The insurgents mounted gun trucks and motorcycles and attacked troops deployed at the Forward Operational Base (FOB) in Rann.
The troops gallantly killed 26 terrorists during the attack and captured their combat vehicles, 18 AK 47 rifles and one M-21 rifle with a large quantity of ammunition.
The troops then forced the insurgents to abandon their mission and withdraw in disarray.
Meanwhile, two officers and five soldiers paid the supreme price, while three personnel sustained gunshot wounds and were moved to the hospital.
