The Nigerian Army has described as fake, news making the rounds that newly promoted Lieutenant General Lamidi Adeosun has been appointed as the Chief of Army Staff of the Nigerian Army.

According to a statement by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Colonel Sagir Musa, Lt.-Gen. L. O. Adeosun was just given an accelerated promotion from Major-General to Lieutenant-General, and still retains his appointment as Chief of Training and Operations of the Nigerian Army.

Contrary to fake news going round insinuating or suggesting appointment of Lieutenant-General L.O. Adeosun as Chief of Army Staff of the Nigerian Army, members of the public are hereby once again informed that Lieutenant-General L. O. Adeosun has just been given special/accelerated promotion from Major-General to Lieutenant-General and formally communicated to him by the Chief of Army Staff Lt.-Gen. T.Y. Buratai.

Lt.-Gen. L.O. Adeosun is only granted special promotion by the President, Commander -in – Chief, of the Armed Forced of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari for his extra ordinary feats, exemplary leadership, loyalty and uncommon commitment in the counter insurgency operation in the North Eastern part of Nigeria.

He still retains his appointment/position as Chief of Training and Operations of the Nigerian Army.

Any contrary information is baseless, fake news and should be disregarded. (Channels TV)
