Army General leading Nigeria's war against Boko Haram removed

Nigeria appoints new chief to head Boko Haram fight

Nigeria appoints new chief to head Boko Haram fight

That plan and the spate of deadly attacks have raised questions about assertions by the government and military that Boko Haram has been all but wiped out, as well as doubts about Nigeria's ability to retain sovereign integrity in the northeast.

In June, barely a month after Ibrahim took over, Boko Haram insurgents attacked Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

A University don, Dr. Mai Jalo Hassan, observed that he has not seen the kind of relationship between the media and the theatre command of operation during General Attahiru's days as it played out during the era of General Lucky Irabor. The Alpha Jet fighter aircraft attacked the target with bombs, killing the insurgents and setting some structures ablaze.

His removal is said to be linked to the seeming inefficiency of his command in tackling the Boko Haram insurgency.

Though a large number of Boko Haram hideouts were raided and many terrorists including kingpins reportedly killed by soldiers during the period, well over 50 soldiers including officers were killed between May and now.

FBI director tells staff to 'expect - and welcome' tough questions
On Sunday in a tweet President Trump had disparaged the Bureau as having a reputation " in tatters - worst in history". It also contributes to a sense of delegitimization within the department, and thus stokes the morale crisis.

It was reported that two suicide bombers attacked Biu in southern Borno on Saturday and killed 18 persons in the town's main market.

Series of attacks were also carried out in Adamawa state. Mr. Ibrahim had a closed door session with the defence chief.

TheCable understands that Ibrahim has been replaced by Rogers Nicholas, a major general who was formerly in charge of logistics at the army headquarters.

The latter is the former Commander of the special Security Task Force (operation Safe Haven) in Jos.

Brig. -Gen. Sani Kukasheka, the Director, Army Public Relations, made the disclosure in a statement issued in Maiduguri.
