General Tukur Buratai, in August gave a 40-day ultimatum for Ibrahim and his troops to capture Abubakar Shekau, the leader of the Boko Haram sect, but this is yet to be achieved.

Gen. Attahiru was appointed the theatre commander about six months ago, replacing Maj.

Attahiru, who took over from Major general Leo Irabor, was at different times, Director of Administration, Defence Headquarters and General Officer Commanding, GOC, 82 Division, Enugu.

He said he had a "close relationship" with Suleyman Aslan, who was Halkbank's general manager and Atilla's superior until 2013. Prosecutors disclosed last week that Zarrab pled guilty in October to helping Iran avoid sanctions and bribing a guard.

The Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Attahiru Ibrahim, has been removed from that position.

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.

Operation Lafiya Dole is at the head of the war against the Boko Haram insurgency.
