President Muhammadu Buhari may carry out a major shake-up in the top echelons of the military feelers reveal.

Current Service chiefs and other senior Army, Naval and Airforce officers might be relieved of their posts to pave way for fresh hands and fresh minds.

Findings showed that Buhari would replace the service chiefs with equally experienced officers.

Most likely, All save for one of the service cheifs would be relieved of their duties.

Sources said that there was anxiety in the military over the looming change of guard which is expected to affect all the services, including the Army, Navy, and the Air Force.

It was gathered that the military chiefs were acutely aware of the fate that might befall them, having reached the pinnacle of their career.

A source said that the President may be considering one of the service chiefs to ensure smooth transition between the present military chiefs and their successors.

But another source said this was not likely, noting that the only service chief that might be retained is the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, who was appointed a few months ago by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

One of our correspondents gathered that Buhari would likely appoint his ?loyalists? and those he had worked with into top positions.

It was also gathered that Buhari might have made up his mind to use policemen and soldiers as presidential security, while whittling down the influence and presence of the Department of State Services (DSS) at the Presidential Villa.

It was also learnt that Buhari indicated his preference for policemen and soldiers trained in body guard protection instead of the usual teams of DSS personnel used by his predecessor.
