Buhari sends Service Chiefs, Dasuki packing

Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari, Monday sent the four Service Chiefs and the National Security Adviser (NSA), packing after a closed door meeting in Abuja, ITRealms reports.

The Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, Chief of Army Staff, Major General Kenneth Minimah, Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Usman Jibrin and Chief of Air Staff, Air Vice Marshall Adesola Amosu, as well as the NSA, Col. Sambo Dasuki were in the list of those fired, at the end of a meeting with Mr. President.

Even though reason for their sack is still unfolding, it would be recalled that the service chiefs were appointed by the immediate past President, Goodluck Jonathan even as their replacements were still unknown.

But the Presidential sources said the service chiefs were commended for their assistance to their motherland whilst relieving them of offices, which came with immediate effect.

ITRealms gathered that their sack may not be unconnected to the recent onslaught by the terrorist group, Boko Haram, which has left estimated 800 Nigerians dead since the May 29 assumption of office by the Buhari-led APC government.

Defence analysts told ITRealms the service chiefs and even NSA whose resignation letter was reportedly turned down; expected they would be fired any day since May 29, as such, they were hardly settled for the complex war against Boko Haram following the change of government.
