Boko Haram: Army removes, replaces Commander

Nigeria Army removes Lafiya Dole commander over Boko Haram resurgence

The development was confirmed on Wednesday by the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Sani Usman.

Rogers Nicholas, a Major-General, has been announced as Ibrahim's replacement.

"Troops of 202 Battalion, Sector 1, Operation LAFIYA DOLE at the early hours of Monday Dec.4, sprang an ambush on unsuspecting Boko Haram terrorists along Sabsawa axis. I can confirm the appointment".

Until his new appointment, Nicholas was the Chief of Logistics at Army headquarters in Abuja, while Ibrahim is believed to have been redeployed to the Army headquarters as the Deputy Chief of Policy and Plans.

Attahiru, who took over from Major general Leo Irabor, was at different times, Director of Administration, Defence Headquarters and General Officer Commanding, GOC, 82 Division, Enugu.

The Knights led the nation in scoring and secured a bid to the 2018 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl on January 1. The 12th-ranked UCF Knights will face off against the 7th-ranked Auburn Tigers in Atlanta on January 1.

It was reported in August 2017 that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai, issued a 40-day ultimatum to the Operation Lafiya Dole Theatre Command to capture Shekau, but that had not been done since the deadline expired in September.

The Nigerian Army on Tuesday said its troops had killed three Boko Haram insurgents in Sabsawa axis of Sambisa forest area of Operation.

The statement reads: "In furtherance of Operation Lafiya Dole, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF), on November 24, neutralised a large gathering of Boko Haram Terrorists (BHT) in Bogumeri, Borno State".

The attacks, which occurred during Attahiru's command, include the kidnapping of members of an oil prospecting team which led to at least 37 people being killed in July, and deadly assaults on the towns of Magumeri, Biu and Madagali, the sources said.

Again, four female suicide bombers attacked the Muna Garage area of Borno State sometime in November, killing 14 persons and injuring many others.
