Major General Yusha’u Abubaka

The Theater Commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, North East, Major General Hassan Umaru has handed over the mantle of leadership of the command to Major General Lucky E. Irabor who was his Deputy Commander.

During the handing over and taking over ceremony at Maimalari Cantonment in Maiduguri, General Umaru said his transfer to the Nigerian Army Headquarters was to take over as the Chief of Training and Operations after the demise of Major General Yushau Abubakar Mahmood who died recently in a road accident along Maiduguri-Damaturu road on an official assignment.

While taking over, the new Theatre Commander, Major General Lucky E. Irabor said he would sustain the military operations against terrorists towards ensuring stability in the North-Eastern Nigeria.
