Jonathan Appoints New Anti-Terrorism Coordinator

Street Journal’s investigations have revealed that heads have started rolling in Nigeria’s security sector as a result of the bomb attacks on strategic locations in the country. True to Street Journal’s report a few days ago that a major shake up was imminent in Nigeria’s security agencies, Ambassador Zakari Ibrahim, the Coordinator on Anti-terrorism has been relieved of his position.  Ibrahim, a former intelligence chief was appointed in January.

The General Officer Commanding (GOC) 82 Division of Nigerian Army, Maj. Gen. Sarkin Yakin Bello has been appointed to replace Ambassador Ibrahim. The  new appointment is part of the Federal Government’s efforts to check the rising wave of terrorism in the country.
Maj. Gen. Bello seems to have some experience as far as militancy is concerned; having served as the Commander of the Joint Task Force (Operation Restore Hope) in the Niger Delta. He also served as the Commander of Operation Flush Out III in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
