The Nigerian Army on Tuesday rubbished reports suggesting the appointment of Major General Lamidi Adeosun as the new Chief of Army Staff.
While debunking the report, the Nigerian Army described the earlier reports as fake.
The Army made this known in a statement obtained by Eye 9ja on Tuesday. The Nigerian Army in the statement noted that Major Adeosun was only promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General, stressing that there were no plans to replace the Nigerian Chief of Army staff.
“He was just promoted to Lieutenant General,” the Nigerian Army noted in the statement.
“He was promoted because of his exemplary feat in the North East counter insurgency operation and other leadership effects,” the statement added.
