Buhari appoints new chief of army staff


President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Farouk Yahaya as the new Nigerian chief of army staff.

The major General will replace Ibrahim Attahiru who died in a military plane crash alongside 10 other officers on Friday, read here.

Attahiru, who died aged 54, was the shortest-serving army chief in Nigeria’s history, having only replaced Tukur Burutai in January. 

This was announced in a statement by Onyema Nwachukwu, acting director of defence information.

Yahaya was the former general officer commanding 1 Division of the Nigerian army. 

Before his appointment, he was the theatre commander of the counter-terrorism military outfit in the north-east code-named operation Hadin Kai.
