The Nigerian Army has reshuffled some of its top senior officers across formations and units.


According to the Army Headquarters, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya approved the posting and appointment of the senior officers including commands, instructional and staff appointment in an effort to reposition the Nigerian Army (NA) for operational efficiency and proficiency.


Some of the senior officers appointed as General Officers Commanding are Major General UT Musa from Headquarters 81 Division to Headquarters 82 Division and appointed GOC, Major General TA Lagbaja from Headquarters 82 Division to Headquarters 1 Division and appointed GOC, Major General OC Ajunwa from Nigeria Defence Section Brasilia to 81 Division and appointed GOC, while Major General AS Chinade was redeployed from Depot Nigerian Army to Headquarters 2 Division and appointed GOC.
