The Nigerian Military is set to engage in a multi-agency confidence building patrol in Rivers State on Saturday, 7th October. This is coming as a precursor to Operation Crocodile Smile II that the Military are set to embark upon from the 6 Division of the Nigerian Military in the state. The multi-agency confidence building patrol is done with supports from other security agencies in the state and is done to put officers of several agencies to be at alert and courageous in the face of daunting security challenges.
In a statement released by Colonel Aminu Iliyasu, Deputy Director of Public Relations of the Nigerian Military, he said the exercise is to be conducted to keep people in good stead and reassure them of the drive of the Nigerian Military to keep Port Harcourt and Rivers State as peaceful as possible.
He also mentioned that it is done in order to discharge their constitutional duties of protecting the public against oppressors and stressed on the fact that it will be necessary to chase miscreants out from their hideouts and ensure the state is as peaceful as possible.
Colonel Iliasu further commented in the need to be ready to see troops along roads especially commuters who may be going about their daily activities to be calm and composed as the men of the Nigerian Military they will be seeing are not there to hurt anyone but avail peace, tranquility and security in the state.
He concluded by thanking environs of the state for their usual awareness and cooperation as he believes this is one exercise that is sorely needed at this period in order to avoid untoward stories.
This may be needed in order to stem a possible spate of rise of kidnap cases and other security mishaps that are usually common at these periods of the year and also, it is in order to mitigate other unseen security challenges that may arise.
