The Nigerian Army has appointed Brigadier General Musa Yusuf as Commandant of the elite Guards Brigade in Abuja.
Brig.-Gen. Yusuf takes over from Brigadier General Anthony Omozoje, who was redeployed to command the 14th Brigade in Ohafia, Abia State.
At a handing over ceremony yesterday in Abuja, the new Commandant of the Guards Brigade stated his commitment to ensuring the safety of President Muhammadu Buhari and his family.

Speaking earlier, the out-gone commander, General Omozoje said there was never a dull moment in the brigade, as the task is very demanding, which requires a lot of commitment, discipline and sacrifice.
