President Jonathan Replaces Service Chiefs With Immediate Effect.

President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked Nigeria’s service chiefs and appointed new ones. “President Jonathan has appointed new Chief of Defence Staff and Service Chiefs. Air Marshal Alex Badeh now CDS. Details shortly..” he tweeted. Mr. Abati said the former Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshall Alex Badeh, has been appointed the Chief of Defence Staff.
He replaces Admiral Ola Ibrahim. Mr. Abati was to later issue a statement announcing the remaining appointments. Major-General Kenneth Tobiah Jacob Minimah takes over from Lt.-General Azubike O. Ihejirika as Chief of Army Staff; Rear Admiral Usman O. Jibrin takes over from Vice Admiral Dele Joseph Ezeoba as Chief of Naval Staff; and Air Vice Marshal Adesola Nunayon Amosu takes over from Air Marshal Badeh as Chief of Air Staff. There had been speculation the service chiefs would be replaced following their inability to curtail the deadly activities of the extremist Boko Haram sect.
