President Buhari Sacks Service Chiefs
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the service chiefs of the army, navy and air force, a presidency spokesman said on Monday.
The spokesman added that their replacements would be announced later on Monday.
The move was widely anticipated as former general Buhari has made cracking down on Islamist militant group Boko Haram his number one priority.
The Chiefs are Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Kenneth Minimah, The Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral Usman Jibrin and Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh.
