The Nigerian Army has rubbished reports (not on Concise News) on the appointment of Major General Lamidi Adeosun as the new Chief of Army Staff.
Concise News understands that there were reports on Tuesday that President Muhammadu Buhari has replaced Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai with Adeosun.
But, the Nigerian Army, in a statement on Tuesday, described such reports as false, adding that Major Adeosun was only promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General.
“He was just promoted to Lieutenant General,” the Nigerian Army noted in the statement.
“He was promoted because of his exemplary feat in the North East counter insurgency operation and other leadership effects.”
