The Nigerian Army on Wednesday announced the posting of 88 Generals, comprising 36 Major Generals and 52 Brigadier Generals.
Also redeployed were 19 Colonels who were moved from their current postings to new ones.
Among the affected officers are – Brigadier Gen. A.B. Omozoje who now heads the Guards Brigade; Brigadier Gen. A.O. Folorunsho moves to 81 Division; Brigadier Gen. B.A. Akinroluyo has been moved to 3 Division; Brigadier Gen. A.G. Okunola goes to 82 Division; Brigadier Gen. E.O. Udoh now heads the 7 Division.
Briefing journalists on the postings, the Director, Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Olajide Laleye warned members of the public not to use the postings to overheat the polity.
Laleye said, “Insinuations and mischievous interpretation of a purely professional, unbiased and thoroughly thought out process should not be trivialised by undue and unfounded speculations.”
The spokesman restated the Army’s efforts and commitment to the fight against insurgency in the Northeastern part of the country.
“The operations are still ongoing and the Nigerian Army, in collaboration with other security agencies would continue to combat terrorism in all its ramifications.
“It is also pertinent to reiterate that the media has an important role to play in the ongoing fight against terrorism.”
