Nigerian officers jubilate as Buhari removes Service Chiefs after 66 months [Video] (Updated: Wednesday, 27th January 2021, 09:22 AM)


There was jubilation at a Naval facility after the exit of former Chief of Naval Staff (CNS) Vice Admiral Ibok Ekwe Ibas and others

On Tuesday, President Muhammadu Buhari appointed Rear Admiral A. Z. Gambo as the new CNS.

Others were Major-General Leo Irabor – Chief of Defence Staff; Major-General I. Attahiru – Chief of Army Staff; Air-Vice Marshal I. O. Amao – Chief of Air Staff.

Apart from Ibas, others finally retired were Chief of Defence Staff, General Abayomi Olonisakin; Chief of Army Staff, Lt-Gen. Tukur Buratai; Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadique Abubakar.

In a viral video, scores of Naval personnel were in celebration mood as they screamed, jumped and hugged each.

DAILY POST gathered that officers and men of the Armed Forces across the country received news of the ex-military heads’ departure with joy.

Citing insecurity, most Nigerians, including stalwarts of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), repeatedly urged Buhari to remove the Service Chiefs.

The Nigerian leader appointed the quartet in July 2015.

In December, a former Senator, Rufai Hanga, said Buhari refused to let them go because he was afraid of a coup.
