Nigerian Army Commences Special Operation In S’East To Clampdown On Biafra Agitators

The Nigerian Army on November 27 began an operation called “Operation Python Dance” in the South East of Nigeria. This was made known in Awka,Anambra State by the Deputy Director of the Army Public Relations Col. Sagir Musa.

According to the army, the operation is aimed at applying the “Rule of Engagement” in deploying troops to deal with pro-Biafra agitators, armed robbers, kidnappers. Other focus of the operation are; herdsmen-farmers clash, communal clashes.

The operation which is expected to last until December 27, is coming about a week after Amnesty International released a report(video) showing how members of the Nigerian military opened fire with live bullets on unarmed pro-Biafra agitators.

Many Nigerians perceive this act of dispatching the military into a civilian population in a time of peace as contrary to the Rules of Engagement, and the real duty of the military.

According to a Nigerian Writer, El Nathan;

“Isn’t this the best? Send the army in to do the police work. Then wonder when they kill hundreds of civilians.”
