The Nigerian Army under the leadership of Lt. General Tukur Buratai, Chief of Army Staff, has redeployed General Olusegun Adeniyi, who appeared in a viral video urging military authorities to supply them with weapons and accurate intelligence to combat Boko Haram terrorists in the North-East region.
Adeniyi, who is Theatre Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, in the viral video lamented how his men were outgunned and ambushed while on an operation in Borno.
According to SaharaReporters, the massive shake-up involving the redeployment of over 50 senior officers will have Adeniyi as one of affected persons.
Several army generals would be removed on account of the viral video that seemed to cause the military authorities great embarrassment.
The Nigerian Army has in recent times suffered huge losses in the fight against Boko Haram due to lack of intelligence, sufficient weaponry to match the insurgents and neglect of troop welfare.
It was also recently reported that the terrorists ambushed and killed over 70 soldiers in Borno State.
