The Nigerian Army has reshuffled some of its senior officers in a major shakeup.
Departing Army spokesperson, Mohammed Yerima, said this in a statement on Thursday.
Among the new appointments was C.G. Musa, a major general, who was named the new Theatre Commander of Operation Hadin Kai, the counter insurgency operation in the North-east region.
Also, Onyema Nwachukwu, a brigadier general, has been appointed as the army spokesperson.
Another brigadier general, A.M. Umar, was appointed the Chief of Staff to the COAS.
TOS News gathered that the exercise is a norm when there is a new leadership in the force, and it is expected of the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Faruk Yahaya, a major general, who replaced the late COAS, Ibrahim Attahiru, who died in a plane crash on May 21.
A similar reshuffle in the army had taken place in February, a few days after Mr Attahiru took over.
In the latest reshuffle, Yahaya appealed to all the affected senior officers “to justify the confidence reposed on them”, adding that all posting and appointments are with immediate effect.
