The General Officer Commanding (GOC), 7 Division, Nigerian Army, Major General Ahmadu Mohammed, has been removed, according to attest information from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

Maj.-Gen. Mohammed has been trending since last night when the news broke of how he escaped death by a whisker when a group of disgruntled soldiers turned their gun at his vehicle and pulled the trigger.

A report this morning in LEADERSHIP quotes a top military source as confiding last night that the GOC had been removed over the incident.

“The source added that details of the circumstances leading to the GOC’s removal would be made known shortly,” the report says, adding that attempts to confirm the removal of the GOC were unsuccessful as several calls and SMS sent to the phone of the spokesperson of defence headquarters, Major-General Chris Olukolade, were not replied.

Maj.-Gen. Olukolade had in a statement issued last night in Abuja disclosed that a machinery has been put in motion to investigate the mutiny.

He said: “The 7 Division of the Nigerian Army is to institute a military board of inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the conduct of soldiers who fired some shots today while the General Officer Commanding was addressing troops in Maimalari cantonment Maiduguri.

“The incident occurred when the corpses of 4 soldiers who died in an ambush while returning from patrol duties in Chibok was being conveyed to the morgue.

“There is calm in the cantonment and all normal operations activities are ongoing.”
