Military officers on Thursday were spotted in a video celebrating the appointment of Major General Farouk Yahaya as the new Chief of Army Staff, COAS.

Naija News had earlier reported that President Buhari appointed Yahaya following the death of Ibrahim Attahiru, in a  plane crash in Kaduna last week Friday.

The Defence Headquarters announced the appointment of Yahaya in a statement released on Thursday.

The new COAS was the General Officer Commanding, GOC, 1 Division of the Nigerian Army and the incumbent Theatre Commander of the Counter-Terrorism Counter Insurgency military outfit in the North East, codenamed Operation HADIN KAI.

The soldiers in the video which congregated in front of the Headquarters of the Theatre of Commander were seen rejoicing following the appointment of Yahaya.

Addressing the soldiers, a senior officer urged the men to pray for the new COAS for “Allah’s protection.”
