Boko Haram: Anxiety over General Olusegun Adeniyi,Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole
The fate of General Olusegun Adeniyi, the Commander of Nigerian military taskforce against Boko Haram is currently a subject of discourse and speculations .
An operational video sent to the defence headquarters in Abuja had found its way into the social media ,raising questions about who leaked the video and the impact it may have on the anti-terrorism war.
Adeniyi had in the video narrated the military strength of the Boko Haram sect including the terrorists’ capacity to fire over 100 bombs alongside multiple attacks trucks against the military .
The video while it was a battle field report contradicted reports the military has been issuing on the progress of the war.If anything, the video showed that the terrorists are far from being defeated as regularly stated.
Unconfirmed report said General Adeniyi has been removed as Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole.
There is however no confirmation of the exact status of the General as at the time of filing this report.
Adeniyi had in January escaped Boko Haram ambush even as he blazed the trail as the first Lafiya Dole commander to lead the troops directly to the war front.
