Ibrahim Attahiru, theatre commander of the operation against Boko Haram, is being replaced by Major General Rogers Nicholas in the wake of a series of "embarrassing" attacks, two military sources told Reuters.

Nicholas is taking over from Major General Ibrahim Attahiru who is redeployed to Army headquarters as the Deputy Chief of Policy and Plans.

Since then, suicide bombings and attacks on military formations have been on the rise.

Attahiru was consequently replaced by new commander, Maj.

In June, barely a month after Ibrahim took over, Boko Haram insurgents attacked Maiduguri, the Borno state capital.

The new Theatre Commander was, until his appointment, the Chief of Logistics at Army headquarters in Abuja.

In May, he took over the theatre command from Lucky Irabor who is now coordinating the multinational joint task force (MNJTF). About 12 soldiers who escorted the academics were reportedly killed.

The Nigerian Army on Tuesday said its troops had killed three Boko Haram insurgents in Sabsawa axis of Sambisa forest area of Operation.

Among the perceived shortcomings of the outgoing commander was his inability to capture the Boko Haram terrorists' leader, Abubakar Shekau.

Although the reason for the removal was not stated, it was learnt that the redeployment was connected with the most recent Boko Haram attacks in the Biu Local Government Area of Borno State, in which at least 18 persons were killed.

Months after the army chief had ordered the capture of Shekau, the sect, using four female suicide bombers, attacked Muna Gari, a suburb of Maiduguri, killing about 14 persons.
