Osinbajo Orders Army Chief Buratai To Relocate To Maiduguri

Nigeria's Acting (Vice) President, Yemi Osinbajo has ordered Chuef of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, and Sadique Abubakar, chief of air staff to relocate to Maiduguri, Borno state capital, with immediate effect.

This directive came after an emergency meeting with some service chiefs on Thursday.

The acting president said there was a need for the military command control centre to be at the hotbed of insurgency. 

Mansur Dan-Ali, minister of defence; Gabriel Olonisakin, chief of defence staff and Ekwe Ite-Ibas, chief of naval staff were also present at the meeting.

Speaking with state house correspondents at the end of the meeting, Dan-Ali said: “We just finished a meeting with the acting president and the three service chiefs. We agreed that they should move back to the command centre again and see what are the things happening there.

“We have also agreed that we should get more surveillance devices, cameras that will be able to see distant attackers coming to the position of our troops.

“Also, the period of the raining season is a difficult moment for us. We cannot dominate the environment like what we do during the dry season but efforts are geared towards regaining our areas. All these ambushes that are happening would be stopped.”
