Army Removes 23 Armour Brigade Commander Indefinitely Over Adamawa Police HQ Invasion

The Nigerian Army has removed the Commander, 23 Armour Brigade, Yola, Brig-Gen. Mohammed Gambo, over the midnight invasion of Adamawa Police Headquarters (HQ), where many army personnel and a police inspector lost their lives.

It would be recall that, the former commander last month mobilised 12 trucks of heavily armed soldiers to invade the Adamawa police Command Headquarters.

Reports say, Gambo is replaced with Brig-Gen. Paul Zawaya, from Michika Local Council of Adamawa.

While receiving the new commander in Government House, Yola, yesterday, Governor Ahmadu Fintiri, who looked excited, urged Zawaya to double his efforts towards reducing the crime rate in the state.

The governor, who was worried over the invasion, tasked the new commander to synergise with other security agencies towards fighting kidnapping among other forms of criminality in Adamawa.

Fintiri assured of his continued support to security outfits towards making the state crime-free, for the betterment of all and sundry.

In his remarks, Zawaya assured the governor that he would do everything possible to maintain security across the state.
