Crocodile Smile VI not for #ENDSARS

Operation Crocodile Smile would hold October 20 and December 31. 

The Nigerian Army has said its Operation Crocodile Smile VI is not against the #ENDSARS protest but a general operation to keep peace.’

In a statement on Saturday, the Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sagir Musa, said this year’s Operation Crocodile Smile would hold between October 20 and December 31.

The statement read in part, “The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to some social media stuff wrongfully condemning the Army and its Leadership over the announcement of Exercise Crocodile Smile VI particularly the Cyber Warfare Component of the Exercise.

“The army hereby enjoins all law-abiding Nigerians to go about their lawful activities unhindered as the Exercise has nothing to do with #EndSARS protest, but a yearly event set out to train NA officers and soldiers in its efforts to ensuring safety and security of Nigeria and her citizens.”

On Sunday, groups reacted against the army being deployed  to quell restiveness in parts of the country.
