EXCLUSIVE: BUHARI SETS TO SACK BURATAI; AS MAJOR GEN. AHMADU MOHAMMED, WHO WAS SACKED BY GOODLUCK JONATHAN TO EMERGE CHIEF OF ARMY STAFF

Secret Reporters

Investigations into the activities of the Buhari’s administration, shows that, the current Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Yusuf Buratai, is on his way out, as cases of fraud and his properties abroad, has embarrassed the Buhari’s administration’. With this, Buhari is to appoint a new Chief of Army Staff to replace Buratai.

Interestingly, Major General Ahmadu Mohammed, The General Officer who was commanding (GOC) 7 Division, Nigerian Army, who was said to have been sacked, by the Jonathan’s administration is to emerge as the Chief of Army Staff.
The then GOC fired upon by some junior officers for intentionally giving wrong orders causing deaths amongst them in the fight against Boko Haram, is the man Buhari has found worthy to lead the Army.

Recollect that, in 2014, angry soldiers opened fire on his official vehicle when he came to address them at the Maimalari Barracks in Maiduguri, the Borno State capital. Reports said, the soldiers rebelled when they were forced to return to Maiduguri from Chibok as they considered it unsafe. The soldiers argued that it was dark and dangerous to return to Maiduguri that night. They therefore requested the then GOC to allow them spend the night in one of the villages considered to be safe for them, but he insisted that they must return the same night and report to Maiduguri. On their way back, they were ambushed leading to the death of some soldiers.

According to the sources, the troops arrived with the corpses of the slain soldiers to Maimalari barracks while the GOC was addressing some troops on the ongoing operation against the insurgency. But when the soldiers sighted the corpses of their deceased colleagues, and learnt about how they died, they condemned the way their superior officers allegedly treated them in the course of the operation, and therefore started shooting sporadically, while others opened fire on the GOC’s vehicle as he narrowly escaped from the scene”. According to the source, “what angered the soldiers most, was the unnecessary deduction of their allowances and subjecting them to harsh working conditions without proper equipment to carry out their duties and as a result, many of them were being killed like rats by the insurgents.

He was supposedly sacked alongside other officers but it turned out he was holing up in Jaji, in Kaduna State, and was never sacked as announced by the then administration.

  1. When a lie is rehashed repeatedly, people mistake it for the truth. Your medium is highly regarded for its incisive investigations. However, this particular report particularly with regard to the person of Gen Mohd is absolutely untrue, the events you narrated did not happen as reported. I challenge you conduct a deeper investigation before publicly maligning an individual who was unjustly treated in the past.
