Updated: Adeosun replaces Buratai as new Army Chief of Staff

Report emerged early this afternoon that's president Buhari has replaced Lt. General Tukur Buratai with Lamidi Adeosun. But in a swift response, the Nigerian Army has denied the report. 

According to report from DAILY POST, "the Army Acting Public Relations Officer, Sagir Musa, described the report flying around social media as false.

He said that Major Adeosun was only promoted to the rank Lieutenant General".

I confirm reports has it that Adeosun promotion is as a result of his commitment and exploits to the fight against insurgency in the North East and other leadership feats.
