VIDEO: Soldiers Celebrate Appointment of General Yahaya Farouk As Chief of Army Staff

Soldiers have applauded the selection of General Yahaya Farouk as the new Chief of Army Staff.

Major General Farouk Yahaya’s appointment as the new Chief of Army Staff, COAS, has left some soldiers overjoyed.

Following the death of Ibrahim Attahiru in a plane crash in Kaduna last week Friday, President Muhammadu Buhari nominated Yahaya as the new COAS.

The Defence Headquarters issued a statement on Thursday announcing Yahaya’s appointment.

The new COAS was General Officer Commanding, GOC, 1 Division, Nigerian Army, and the current Theatre Commander of Operation HADIN KAI, a counter-terrorism counter-insurgency military operation in the North East.

In a video, the soldiers who congregated in front of the Headquarters of the Theatre of Commander were seen jubilating upon the mention of Yahaya as the new Army Chief.
Addressing the soldiers, a senior officer urged the men to pray for the new COAS for “Allah’s protection.”
A Twitter user @Abbakar1030 shared the video.
