He said the bandits came in large numbers on motorcycles and engaged the troops in a battle that lasted for two hours before dislodging them.
Three members of the Kaduna Vigilante Group were also killed during the attack.
A military signal seen by DCO Global News confirmed the incident.
The signal read, “TEXT: OP DOMINION STORM SPECIAL SITREP (.) SITREP AS AT 041200A APR 22 (.) *BHT/ BANDITS ATTK *(.) AT ABOUT 031645A APR 22 (.)

On Monday, SaharaReporters had reported that the terrorists also stormed villages across Kagarko and Kachia Local Government Areas of Kaduna State.
They killed no fewer than 17 residents in the four communities after abducting 22 others around Angwar Ma’aji in Jere, Kagarko LGA, according to the report.
This happened barely 24 hours after the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, visited the Kaduna-Abuja highway.
Jere, which shares a boundary with Tafa-Sabon-Wuse in Niger State, is located on the ever-busy Abuja-Kaduna highway.
A resident of Angwar Maji, Shehu Bala, who confirmed the latest attacks, had said the incident happened around 11pm on Sunday.
He said the bandits, who came in large numbers, invaded some houses and whisked away 22 residents, including five women.
