Jos — Major General Ebiobowei Awala has been posted as the new General Officer Commanding (GOC) has been posted to 3 Division, Nigerian Army, Maxwell Khobe Cantonment, Rukuba, Jos. His posting followed recent changes in the hierarchy of the Nigerian Army.

Major General Awala, until his new posting, was the Commander, Nigerian Army Armoured Corps, Bauchi. He replaces Major General Jack Okechukwu Nwaogbo who has been posted from the 3 Division to Army Headquarters as Chief of Training and Operations (CTOPs).

During a handing over ceremony at the Maxwell Khobe Cantonment in Jos yesterday, Nwaogbo thanked officers and men of the 3 Division for contributing efforts to make his leadership a success and asked that the same support should be extended to Awala.

On his own, Awala promised to sustain Nwaogbo's achievements and break new grounds of development for the Jos army formation.
