President Buhari sacks National Security Adviser (NSA) and Service Chiefs

President Muhammadu Buhari has sacked the Heads of Army, Navy and Air Force as well as the National Security Adviser (NSA).

Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said this while briefing State House correspondents on Monday.

Mr Adesina did not give more details.

There has been a surge in the spate of attacks by terrorist group, Boko Haram, in recent weeks.

The group had seemed to be loosing its grip on the north-east region of Nigeria when the Nigerian military launched a seemingly successful operation to reclaim all territories lost to the insurgents.

However, with about 500 lives lost in recent suicide bombings in Yobe, Kaduna, Plateau and Kano states, there has been renewed pressure on the military for a more effective approach to the war on terror.
