Kashim Shettima Blows Hot, Describes Ex LAFIYA Dole Commander As ‘Incompetent’
Borno State Governor, Kashim Shettima, has described as “incompetent,” the immediate past Theatre Commander of the Joint military force fighting in the northeast, code named, Operation LAFIYA DOLE, Major General Ibrahim Attahiru, over his failure to assiduously combat terrorism in the region.
The governor said this on Monday while delivering his speech at a town hall meeting on security in the Northeast, in Maidugiri, the Borno State capital.
According to him, his successor, Major Gen. Nicholas Rogers, an officer of Southeast origin, has recorded success in the past weeks, compared to Attahiru, who in six months, failed to achieve results.
The governor noted that the successes recorded by the military in the last six weeks could not be realised in three years.
Shettima further urged the Federal Government to give the Nigerian Army all the needed support especially this dry season, as according to him, the forest would become inaccessible during the rainy season and give the insurgents room to regroup.
