The Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General ATTAHIRU IBRAHIM has been removed from his position.
Ibrahim’s redeployment comes three days after Boko Haram insurgents attacked Biu town in Borno where at least 18 people were killed and 52 others seriously injured.
He has now been replaced by ROGER NICHOLAS, also a major General.
The new Theatre Commander was, until his appointment, the Chief of logistics at the Army Headquaters in Abuja.
IBRAHIM is believed to have been redeployed to the Army Headquarters as the Deputy Chief of Policy and Plans.
The Nigerian Army is yet to officially announce the new deployment.
