Nigerian Military Replaces Super Camp Commander After Major Setbacks

Nigerian military counter insurgency headquarters have replaced the commander of a super camp after Islamic State insurgents overran two bases in Borno State, Northeast Nigeria.

The military command relieved Y. Ibrahim, a  Brig. Gen of his position as the Brigade commander of Nigerian Army 22 Brigade Super camp Dikwa and replaced him with Brig. Gen. AGL Haruna.

The change is coming on the heels of attacks by  Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP)  on the Army Super camp in Dikwa and 153rd Task Force Battalion in Marte on Friday.

HumAngle understands that the military is setting in motion plans to strengthen its presence in New Marte after a series of setbacks and overrunning of the base located at the Lake Chad Basin Quarters. 

Ibrahim Attahiru, Maj.Gen and Nigeria’s Chief of Army  has arrived in Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.

Gen Attahiru is scheduled to hold a briefing with the Theatre Commander and other commanders of the country’s counter-insurgency operation against Boko Haram and ISWAP.
