The Boko Haram insurgency, which began in 2009, has left at least 20,000 dead and made more than two million others homeless.

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.

That plan and the spate of deadly attacks have raised questions about assertions by the government and military that Boko Haram has been wiped out, as well as doubts about Nigeria's ability to retain its sovereign integrity in the Northeast. The month after, a group of geologists and technologists from the University of Maiduguri were ambushed by Boko Haram insurgents at Magumeri area of Borno state.

Though a large number of Boko Haram hideouts were raided and many terrorists including kingpins reportedly killed by soldiers during the period, well over 50 soldiers including officers were killed between May and now. Gen. Sani Usman, confirmed the sack of the Ibrahim.

Also in November, Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, witnessed one of the worst suicide bombings in recent times when four female suicide bombers attacked Muna Gari, a suburb of the city, killing 14 persons.

His replacement has been named as Nicholas Rogers, who until recently has been involved in the Nigerian military's attempt to pacify ethnic skirmishes in the central region.

The former theatre commander, who was deployed to Army Headquarters, is to now serve as deputy Chief of Policy and Planning.
