Gen. Andrew Azazi and the Minister of Defence, Bello Haliru Fired
Presidnet Goodluck Jonathan on Friday got angry and took very drastic decision with regards to the security leadership in the country. He has fired the National Security Adviser, his brother from Bayelsa State, Gen. Andrew Azazi and the Minister of Defence, Bello Haliru.
Our correspondents gathered from top security sources in Abuja that Mr. President has immediately replaced Gen. Azazi with retired Col. Sambo Dasuki. He is also expected to forward a new name to the National Assembly to replace Bello Haliru who was sacked as Defence Minister.
Recall that the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, has held the Jonathan-led administration to the ground in the last one week, almost making a mockery of the country's security tactics.
