Army General sent back to school for complaining about Boko Haram superior firepower

Army General sent back to school for complaining about Boko Haram superior firepower

 

For complaining about the superior firepower of the Boko Haram terrorists, the Theatre commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Olusegun Adeniyi has been sent back to school.

Adeniyi was ordered to become a research fellow at Nigerian Army Resource Centre (NARC) in Abuja, few days after a video of him complaining about Boko Haram insurgents having more ammunition went viral.

He was immediately replaced by Major General Faruk Yahaya who was the general officer commanding (GOC) of the army’s 1 division in Kaduna. Adeniyi had been in-charge of Operation Lafiya Dole since 2019.

Although spokesman of the Nigerian Army, Sagir Musa said the new postings was a routine exercise intended to reinvigorate the system for greater professional effectiveness and efficiency, social media users insist that Adeniyi’s deployment was a vindictive move by Buratai because Adeniyi told him an embarrassing truth.

Here is full statement announcing the new postings below;
