Jaji bombing: Commandant, Infantry Corps Commander removed

From UBONG UKPONG, Abuja

Barely one week after the bombing of St. Andrews Protestant Military Church at the Armed Forces Command and Staff College, Jaji, Kaduna State, Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Admiral Ola Sa’ad Ibrahim, has relieved the College’s Commandant, Air Vice Marshal I. A. Kure, and the Infantry Corps Commander, Major General M. D. Isa of their appointments.

Their removal was predicated upon the report of the Board of Inquiry constituted to investigate circumstances surrounding last Sunday’s bombing of the church.  A statement issued yesterday by Defence Headquarters, signed by its spokesman, Colonel Mohammed Yerima, and made available to the media in Abuja, revealed that Kure and Isa were sent back to their various services, the Air Force and Army headquarters for further action.

Air Vice Marshal E.E. Osim was appointed to replace Air Vice Marshal I. A. Kure as Commandant, Armed Forces Command and Staff College (AFCSC), while Maj-Gen K.C. Osuji would act as Corps Commander, Infantry, Jaji.  After the bombing, the CDS visited the scene for assessment, after which he went into a crucial session with the Principal Staff Officers of the College, where Sunday Sun learnt he read the riot act over the security situation at the college.

    Nigeria Government knows what is going on in Nigeria security and people that’re responsible for it……… Can’t them question those security guys at the gate during the Sunday attack and know in whose order did they allow those boko haram or whatever they called themselves to go in to the Compound of the army forces without proper searching…… so i think Federal Government knows the truth about the security problem in Nigeria, but they did not want to tacle it…… appointing a new officers without telling us the clear picture of the reason why the old ones was replaced is too bad.

      If you had kept quite, your ignorance, foolishness and stupidity would have gone unnoticed.

  3. Kenny December 2, 2012 at 3:31 am

    I will appeal to right thinking and wise Nigerians to ignore a self declare lunatic named Nwabufo Okoye, responding to his mail will only make him infamously popular. He even put SAW, which means (Peace be Upon Him) showing the depth of ignorance he is trying to display and self contradictory a fool can be.

    This is absolutely ridiculous. How can they redeploy Maj. Gen. Isa and Adm. Kure when more than 15 persons were killed under their watch? These so-called Generals should have not only been sacked, but also court-marshalled and be in custody. Gen. Petraus of USA is being sacked just for having consensual sex. Nigeria is a country of anything goes.

    • ChinnyC December 2, 2012 at 8:07 pm

      Udam, I tire o. Thatz why we keep having re-occurence of these criminal acts against human lives in Nigeria. Everybody knows that these atrocities are planned by Hausa politicians and those in authorities. They are helping their bokos to kill christians. God will see His children through.

  5. balakuv December 2, 2012 at 6:09 am

    @kenny, u ar so right. D guy is insane just opening his mouth without fact, without reason or sense. HE doesn’t wat he is doing.

  6. Stine Chykee December 2, 2012 at 6:11 am

    By replacing those Housa muslims bigot called themselves Kule and Isa and replace them with Igbo man,K C Osuji and Osim shows that those two men are informant to the Boko haram and they were Boko haram sympathisers and they should be arrested and interogated with immediate effect so as get more information about them and also to other millitary that still hide give informatons to the Boko haram.I think it will be better to re overhaul security apallatus again and let the Southern senior millitary head the security of this country Nigeria becouse as it stands its obvious the Boko haram has indeed infiltrated the millitary appallatus and the Northern millitary heads have been compromised by their sympathies they shows to the Boko haram but the Southern millitary heads is the only the option left to use in tackling and fight Boko haram menace whithout playing sentiment,being bias or sympathise them the way their Northern millitary counterpart has done most of the time

    When did this bombings and killings started and what caused it? I have heard enough about it and yet haven’t got the cause of it. Can some body tell me what is going on about all these things?

    • ChinnyC December 2, 2012 at 8:15 pm

      Killing and bombing started when Buhari lost election which he contested with GEJ. The North (muslims) swore that there won’t be peace in Nigeria unless they rule Nigeria. On Aljazeera, Buhari was begged by the presenter to beg his followers to stop killing innocent citizens. Buhari refused and said that they were showing their annoyance over the election. Thatz the genesis of this bokoharams o. You can see how much hausa man hates his fellow citizens.

  8. Ibraheem December 2, 2012 at 6:51 am

    Nwabufo okoye,a senseless idiot,one day you will face the wrath of God for this comment,stupid senseless illitrate,how dare you!

      Is in the doctrine of Islam to be murderers, voilence, arsonist, bombers, haters, fighters. Is rooted in Quoran and taught in the musque and other place of muslem gathering. Why should Islam lack peace all over the world. They should at least shun voilence and emulate the culture of residents of Saudi Arabia.
      Buhari has a good hand in this security mess, bcos since he lost presidential election, his party CPC, his party agents, his state and local govt campaign co-ordinators carried unimaginable scale of voilence against the electortoral officers, NYSC members, southerners, christians, electoral and INEC officers with their materials and properties. Then, Igbo and few Yorubas shops were looted and burnt down. This is Buhari and his followers for u. They are well politically associated with islamic voilence doctrine.

    • Chairman December 2, 2012 at 3:27 pm

      They won’t leave nwabufo alone for saying what his opinion and I think that nwabufo has the right to air his mind here, he said that mohamed is wicked because of influence on the boko haram and other islamic terrorists (and they are many) whether he added saw or blade to his name does not make a difference, and he thinks that buhari is behind the killings because he said that nig will be ungovernable if he did not rule and it looks like he is keeping his promise, mr bad road I hope your question is answered?

  11. NIGERIAN BAD ROADS December 2, 2012 at 7:03 am

    Bia Chukwudi? Okwi’ma n’ikarigo eberibe in’eme n’ebaa?

  12. Law December 2, 2012 at 7:03 am

    I think the two principal officers are boko haram sympathisers and were removed to pave way for osuji and osim whom i believe to be a southener and christians to take over the affairs of the college. Am impressed by this action and pls more should be taken to clean up this mess called Boko haram.

  13. Ibn Ibrahim December 2, 2012 at 7:21 am

    @okoye,u need to visit a nearby psycatic hospital 4 medical exermination,u are not worthy to leave among sane ppls.remeber that,what comes out 4rm your mouth will either condemn u or promote u.Islam is a religion of principles,whoever follows it,has embrace right guidance & d best guidance is 4rm almighty God.

    • ChinnyC December 2, 2012 at 8:27 pm

      Ibn, can you educate us on the relationship between the preaching in your koran and the actions of moslems. Islam is peace, right? Yet moslems are taught that when they murder people, created by God Almighty, they will go to heaven and be given 70 virgins to marry there. Why are the followers violent and murderers? Please, educate me, I am confused.

  14. Wunuji December 2, 2012 at 8:00 am

    Ibn Ibrahim, what do u call ur actions of killing innocent people? Is that right?

  15. esquire December 2, 2012 at 8:12 am

    The action of the CDS is a welcome development and should be embraced by all and sundry.

  16. Mojkwu Uche December 2, 2012 at 8:22 am

    Ibn Ibrahim you are a blantant Lair… Okoye should be left alone… he is exercising his fundermental human right!!

  17. Frank December 2, 2012 at 8:38 am

    Gen Buhari was called by Boko Haram as one of their negotiator, is a Boko Haram member. Islam is a slain and bad religion. All northern political elites belongs to this dreaded group and were equipting them with finances and materials to execute their islamic jihadish will.

  18. david December 2, 2012 at 9:11 am

    i hate when an issue is thrown to the floor to deliberate ,people will be going off point…i am a christian but i hate any discussion that is off point…leave religion out of this topic now period…let God judge bad people because is only Him that knows everything good morning.

  19. Ethelbert Opara December 2, 2012 at 10:59 am

    I love the military, particularly under democracy. The CDS has taken action swiftly without any fear or sentiment. If it were a political matter, those top officers would’ve remained till God know when. President would’ve set up a committee that would seat for 6 months, and turn in a report whose recommendations would not be adopted. To d person asking about d security men who manned the gate; forget it, they must have been severely dealt with. The military are organized and disciplined that there is no room for deviants.

  20. viccy December 2, 2012 at 1:16 pm

    my prayer is that almighty GOD through his infinit power will deliver nigeria and nigerans from the hands of the devil in the name of boko haram, can the believers say AMEN!!!

  21. Ibn Ibrahim December 2, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    @wunuji,killing innocent ppls is unislamic.

  22. okey onuoha December 2, 2012 at 3:27 pm

    Is there no mosque in that baracks?? Why was it not attacted by these satanic agents?? All the detagents of this world cannot wash Buhari clean of terorism in Nigeria. But he is shooting himself and his kingsmen on the foot.

  23. favour 30 December 2, 2012 at 4:25 pm

    Alhaji OBJ ,i think U are seeing this.yr action of allowing Sharia in order to become life President of Nigeria contributed big to this mess Nigerians found themselves
    today.PDP and ANPP contributed a lot in to this mess calledBH.they trained and equipped taughts who latter metamorphosed into BH.
    I don’t think Buhuari had hand in this BH issue.he may have said Nigerian being ungovernable based in his past experience in the hands of election riggers engineered by new converted Alhaji OBJ.
    if GEJ is serious, the issue of BH would have being a past.i think he is adopting a strategy to win 2015,let me see a christian who will give him his vote.OBJ use to be
    a christian b4 his recent conversion to Islam,who knows
    if GEJ is planning to follow the same path by becoming Alhaji Goodluck.i am a christian but i will vote eighter a Muslim or a Christian who have fear of God not deceitful person using religion or tribe to cover up.north have Christians are the not qualify to govern?Igbos have Christians and less than 0.01% of Muslims are they not qualify to govern?my prayer is let all those who will not move Nigeria 4ward and are not ready to repent and are not ready to allow the country to divide peaceful or leave the country to prosper die b4 the next gen.election 2015 in Jesus name.

  24. Bond Boy December 2, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    AMEN to your prayer FAVOUR 30

  25. Emeka December 2, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    I would’nt want to join words wit the likes of nwabufo. I guess was’nt born or at best was still wearing pamper in 1984 wen the great mai gaskiya held sway.

  26. Ken December 2, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    check all the terrorist around the world and all the member of the boko haram…. they are all Muslims. therefore, i think okoye is right when he said that Mohammed are evil and his followers called Muslims are also evil

  27. NWANKWO HYGINUS December 2, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    ALL CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS SHOULD BE AT ALERT EVERY NOW AND THEN, AND NEVER BE AT EASE WITH THE ISLAMIC CO-SOLDIERS.THESE SECT ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN DANGER.

    MY RESPECTED PRESIDENT ,GOODLUCK JONATHAN, BE MORE THAN CAREFUL WITH THOSE ISLAMIC WORSHIPERS THAT ARE ON SIT. NEVER YOU GIVE A DAMN YOU HAVE EVERY VETO POWER TO CHANNEL THINGS AS YOU FELL. FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THIS COUNTRY AS AT MOMENT!!!

    TO CROWN IT ALL, THOSE SECURITY MEN AT THE GATE WHO FAILED TO DISCHARGE THEIR DUTIES BY SEARCHING THOSE DEMONIC BOKO HARAM ISLAMIC SECTS THAT BOMBARDED THE St. Andrews Protestant Military Church . THEY SHOULD UNDERGO INTO A VERY SERIOUS TORTURE AND INTERROGATIONS BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT INNOCENT.

  28. humphrey December 2, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    This mess will stop when Mr. President un-covers those behind (sponsors of) boko haram. They are Nigerians and this is a task that must be done. May God give him the courage to do so. Amen

  29. mii December 2, 2012 at 10:32 pm

    why do we waste time asking who are BH. The presidency know them. They are just romancing the BH. Where is Gen Buhari and former vice president Atiku? Have we not read or heard about their comments and their actions,” Nigeria will be ungovernable if dont become president” If it is a poor man that made the comment they would have been thrown to jail. May the souls of the departed rest in peace, amen
