The names of the deceased were given as Colonel Kenneth Elemele, Lance Corporal Dimos Daniel, Oguntuase Ayo, Ajijola Sunday and Private (PTE) Akinola Ayoola.
The burial of the Colonel and four soldiers was delayed to allow army authorities get across to the families and relatives of the deceased personnel.
The solemn ceremony was conducted under the lead of Major General Olusegun Adeniyi who is now the Acting Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole following redeployment of commanders in the Nigerian Army.
