At last, Buhari replaces service chiefs

By Our Correspondent

President Muhmmadu Buhari has replaced the service chiefs with immediate effect.

Femi Adesina, presidential spokesman, broke the news on Tuesday afternoon.

The new service chiefs are Leo Irabor, a major-general of the Nigerian army, chief of defence staff; I Attahiru, chief of army staff; A Z Gambo, chief of naval staff; and I O Alao, chief of air staff.

He wished the former service chiefs all the best in their endeavour.

The outgoing service chiefs were appointed in 2015 but there were calls for them to be sacked based on the rising insecurity in the country.
