The Nigerian Army has launched “Operation Crocodile Smile II” in South West, with over 1,000 men of the Nigerian Army assembled in Lagos state.
The flag-off of the exercise took place at the Tarkwa Bay area of Lagos with personnel, including the Special Boat Services of the Nigerian Navy present.
The development is coming a day after the Nigerian Army had said the “Operation Crocodile Smile II” was an operation meant to ensure the safety of the South West.
The Commander of the 32 Artillery Brigade, Brigadier-General James Ataguba made this known on Thursday, during the decoration of two officers of the Brigade, Ojo Adelegan, and Samson Oladunjoye, who were promoted to the ranks of major.
Brigadier-General Ataguba had said: “The operation we had recently in Akoko area where kidnappers’ hideouts were crushed had brought peace to this state. The operation was a warning to the criminals and I think they have yielded to the warning.
“There is no gainsaying everybody is peace-loving.
“Python Dance is for Nigeria safety. We are to complement the effort of police. To make sure everyone is comfortable.
“Also Crocodile Smile will soon come here in Ondo, it is our next target. Those who have nothing to hide have nothing to fear. Crocodile Smile is not to torment the citizens but to ensure their safety. We will remain awake while our people will sleep,” he had said.
