The Nigerian Army has appointed a new Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole in the person of Major General Hassan Umaru. He replaces Major General Yushau Abubakar, who is now Chief of Training and Operation of the Nigerian Army Headquarters.

Abubakar, while handing over to Umaru, described officers and men of the theater as heroes, noting that many of them have put their lives on the line in defence of the nation.

He said: “I am very delighted today, as I am leaving the leadership of the Operation Lafiya dole a happy man because we have successfully done what is best to the military and the country at large, as we have degraded the capacity of the terrorists and Nigerians should appreciate hard work performed by the military and I am leaving the scene to a person who is already in the theater of war and is familiar with the terrain in the area of the operation.

“I consider all of you as my heroes, as all of you have contributed to the feat we achieved in the war against insurgency within the theater. My redeployment to the Army headquarters is an indication of the confidence the military high command have in us and I urge you to extend the gesture to my successor.”

Also handing over, the General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maiduguri, Major General Lamidi Adeosun urged officers and men of the Division to cooperate with his successor, Brigadier General Victor Ezugwu, whom he described as a fine infantry officer that will continue the good work until the terrorists are completely wiped out.

Major General Lamidi Adeosun is going to Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) with headquarters in Chad.
