The new Acting General Officer Commanding (GOC) 7 Division of the Nigerian Army, Ibrahim Yusuf, has formally taken over command of the Division in Maiduguri.

Mr. Yusuf, a brigadier general, took over from Victor Ezugwu, also a brigadier general, who was posted to Depot Nigerian Army Zaria as Commandant.

At a brief ceremony at the Maimalari Barracks, headquarters of the division, the new GOC was presented with the division’s flag by his predecessor after signing the handing and taking over notes.

He later inspected the Quarter Guard where old flag was lowered and new one hoisted to signify the change of command at the division.

Mr. Yusuf, who hails from Yobe, is the seventh GOC of the Division since its formation in 2013.

He is a member of 37 Regular Course of the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) and also an alumni of the National Defence College, Abuja.

Until his latest appointment, Mr. Yusuf was the registrar of the NDA.
