Nigerian Army Will Conduct Themselves Professionally During South-East Operation–Buratai

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt Gen Tukur Yusuf Buratai has assured Nigerians resident in the South East that his soldiers will conduct themselves professionally during “Operation Python Dance”.

This came on the heels of fears that were expressed by Nigerians that the operation,which is ongoing in the predominantly Igbo South East could lead to the massive molestation and killing of innocent citizens by soldiers.

Recently, Amnesty International released video evidence of Nigerian soldiers opening fire on unarmed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) supporters, resulting to the death of close to 150 of them.

Lt. Gen Buratai has now allayed those fears when he paid courtesy visits to some South East governors.According to him;

“We will ensure that our troops conduct themselves professionally and responsibly during Exercise #PythonDance”

The army has also released dedicated phone numbers for the operation.The numbers are as follows;
Headquarters 14 Brigade, Ohafia, Abia State- 07068688482.

Headquarters 302 Artillery Regiment, Awka, Anambra State- 07011115583.

Headquarters 24 Support Engineer Regiment, Abakaliki, Ebonyi State -09053974736.

Headquarters 82 Division Garrison, Enugu, Enugu State -08063282844.

Headquarters 34 Brigade, Owerri, Imo State- 08171609638 and 08065642870.

The statement on the Army’s official website encourages citizens to “…please call any of the … dedicated GSM phone numbers for any information or request for help during the ongoing Exercise PYTHON DANCE in the South East”
