Spokesman of CML, General Ben, had said last week:
"We will decide what to do with the 24 soldiers captured. Their Pilot 1, MB12 Thunder Boat is in our custody.However, PRO of the Nigerian Army, Sani Usman, has called bluff on the claims, stating that such incident did not take place.
"This is our territory and they cannot escape from our domain because they have crossed our border."
"There is nothing like that," Usman said in a text message on Saturday in response to queries over the incident.
