Army Launches ‘Crocodile Smile’ As #EndSARS Protests Spread To More Cities by Doraty1(f): 4:14pm On Oct 17
The Nigerian Army says it is set to start its annual exercise “Crocodile Smile” to identify, track and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace.

In a statement, Musa Sagir, army spokesman, said the exercise will begin across the nation from Tuesday.

“This year’s Exercise CROCODILE SMILE V1 is scheduled to commence from the 20th of October to the 31st of December 2020,” Sagir said in a statement.

The Exercise is deliberately intended to be all encompassing to include cyber warfare exercises designed to identify, track and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace.

This is the first ever Cyberwarfare exercise to be conducted in the history of the African Armed Forces. Accordingly, the exercise will also include positive identification component aimed at identifying Boko Haram terrorists fleeing from the North East and other parts of the country as a result of the ongoing operations in the various theatres of operations especially in the Northeast, North Central and North Western parts of Nigeria.

“The Nigerian Army, once again, reassures all well meaning Nigerians of its commitment to the sustenance of peace and security in Nigeria and urges members of the public for their support and understanding throughout the period of the exercise.”

If they like, they should commence operation rhinoceros giggle, the struggle continues.
I see dumb folks who ask, "SARS has since been dissolved, why are people still protesting?"
How much could possibly be unraveled out of all the unimaginable deeds that have gone down on this side of the planet? It's all a fertile soil where all forms of lawlessness and fvckery grow, waters of innocent blood, valleys of dry bones, clouds of terror and air of wickedness.
The big offices are filled with predators and evil men who feed on wickedness. Big men in big cloths which is stained within and without with unseen blood of innocent people. They purchase expensive cars with the flesh of the people they govern, build mansions home and abroad with the souls of the masses and their expensive trips are bankrolled with the painful tears of their subjects. Intimidating the vulnerable masses is their only source of joy; vampires who suck the blood of others.
The graves are filled with the bones of innocent souls. People whose only offences were finding themselves in the wrong country. Children who died of poverty and never lived old enough to be conscious of their own existence. Kids who did not live to play with their new toys, fathers who never lived to see their unborn kids, talents who did not live long enough to be celebrated, innocent people hit by stray bullets from trigger happy policemen, great minds who were cut short because of greediness and sheer wickedness of their corrupt leaders, newly-weds who never lived to enjoy their honeymoon, people who left their delicious foods halfway on the table but never returned to finish them.
The innocent blood keep crying day and night, their voices could be heard on clear nights. All what they keep crying for is justice.

If we spend the rest of our days protesting against evil and sending the souls of bloody tyrants below the ground level, that would be the purest form of patriotism any race can achieve, and history will for ever be kind to us.

Buhari is about to pour petrol on a raging fire, let's see how it goes. Maybe the set time for Nigeria to be free has finally come.

Nigerian youths don't give up. I was with our youths at Lekki Toll Gate yesterday and I was moved to tears. This must not stop until demands are met.


And what these uniform guys don't know is that there are deadlier civilian youths than their bravest commandos. They should not provoke the already angry and frustrated youths.

Most of them are not born warriors, they only got enlisted into Nigerian Army through connections and mago mago army recruitment, which makes it difficult for the right people to join the army, so most of the Nigerian soldiers now are cowards, lily livered that's why they cannot stage a coup despite the bad civilian governments treating them and their welfare like thrash since 1999.

The brave soldiers in Nigeria are all retired, dead and gone, the ones in Nigerian army now are Yahoo soldiers that joined army to quench hunger and unemployment.


For over 10 years now, these same cowardly Nigerian army have not been able to defeat ordinary illiterate Boko Haram militants, talk more of sophisticated youths.

Without gun they are holding, many guys will eat most of our military guys raw, now imagine if more Nigerian youths pick up arms like Boko Haram, Nigeria will burn to ashes, most of these cowardly soldiers and Police forming commando will tear their uniforms and run away like chicken just like they do when Boko Haram attack them ruthlessly.


They only get strength and form brave when they see unarmed youths, but let the same youths form deadly robbery or terrorist squad and grab weapons, these same soldiers will start to pee in their cowardly army uniforms and some will escape to neighboring countries out of fear like they do in Northeast.


Let them borrow some sense, these guys are demanding for a change that will also benefit them and their families, and they won't be extorting, robbing and killing souls to make ends meet as their pay are just a pocket money we give to our boys

As usual they want to flex muscles with innocent civilians while exhibiting cowardice when the real duty calls. The last time I checked, bandits and boko haram are still having a filled day.

The primary duty of the State is the protection of the fundamental human rights of it's citizens.

One of such rights is the right to peaceful assembly. The protesters are exercising that right. It is the duty of the State to provide protection for them and ensure they are safe from hoodlums, criminal elements and even unruly counter-protesters whether sponsored or organic.

Another of such rights is the right to freedom of movement. The state has a duty to protect the rights to unhindered movement of citizens who wish to go about their lawful activities at all times.

The State fails when it forcibly breaks up protests under the guise of upholding "freedom of movement".

The State also fails when it stands back and does nothing when protesters deny other citizens access to public roads thereby violating their rights to free movement cos it wants to be seen as supporting freedom of expression.

It doesn't matter who is in the majority at any given time - whether the protesters or the other citizens, the State must ensure simultaneous protection of everyone's rights at all times.

The hensman fool thinks everything is war..
Well then war it is then, he has forgotten that the same ak-47 armed robbers, police, NDLEA, and even Boko haram use is the same type his soldiers of terror use... shame.
It doesn't take much to lay hands on a gun let alone use one....
If they think force is everything then we'll show them we are plentier than them!!!! When it's start a more United force will be waiting to face the biased mind of his soldiers.
Even in heaven there was war before things went back to normal..

No going back on the struggle...
