This was contained in a press statement issued by the Public Relations Officer (APRO) of the 13 brigade, Nigerian army, Calabar, Captain Kayode Owolabi.
According to the statement, the foiled operation was led by wanted leader of the militant group, Benjamin Ene, alias G1.
Several items including 250 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, rocket propelled gun launcher, GPMG belt links and various charms were recovered from members of the group, who were decked in Nigerian military  camouflage uniform, the statement added.
“Unrepentant militant group, the Bakassi Strike force, led by most wanted criminal, Benjamin Ene, alias G1, attacked army position in Efut Isigi, Cross River State, at about 0100hours.
“The very determined troops of 13 brigade and Operation Delta Safe repelled the attack, killing 7 of the militants, some of them wearing Nigerian military camouflage.
“Items recovered are 250 rounds of 7.62mm ammunition, rocket propelled gun launcher, GPMG belt links and various charms were recovered, while several others escaped with gunshot wounds,” the statement read in part.
