Boko Haram attacks appear to have increased since Mr. Ibrahim assumed duties with scores of suicide bombings, mostly by teenage girls, occurring between May and December.

Following to resurgence of Boko Haram attacks in the North-east, Major General Attahiru Ibrahim has been removed from his position as the Theatre Commander of the Lafiya Dole operation.

The insurgents continued to stage daring attacks including on military formations.

The attacks include the kidnapping of members of an oil prospecting team in July, where about 37 persons were killed, and deadly assault on Magumeri, Biu and Madagali, sources added.

On November 21, another suicide bomber blew himself up killing at least 50 worshippers at a mosque in Mubi, a town in Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria.
