President Buhari Fires Service Chiefs

President Muhammadu Buhari has relieved service chiefs of their positions. The affected officers are Alex Badeh, chief of defence staff; Usman Jibrin, chief of naval staff, Kenneth Minimah, chief of army staff and Adesola Amosu, chief of air staff. All of them were appointed by former president, Goodluck Jonathan, on January 16, 2014. Badeh took over from Ola Sa’ad Ibrahim; Minimah replaced Azubike Ihejirika; Jibrin succeeded Joseph Ezeoba and Amosu became chief of air staff following the elevation of Badeh. Since he assumed office on May 29, Buhari has met with the dismissed military chiefs on three occasions.
