Army: "Crocodile Smile" Not Targeted At EndSARS Protesters by Ecstasy154(m): 9:33pm On Oct 18, 2020
The Nigerian Army has clarified that “Operation Crocodile Smile” is not targeted at #EndSARS protesters.

Acting Director of Army Public Relations, Sagir Musa, made this known in a press statement on Sunday.

The statement read in part, “The attention of the Nigerian Army (NA) 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. This year’s Exercise CROCODILE SMILE is scheduled to commence from the 20th of October to the 31st of December 2020 has no relationship with any lawful protest under any guise whatsoever.


“For the records, Exercise CROCODILE SMILE is a yearly exercise in the NA Calendar/Forecast of Events which traditionally holds from October to December of each year.

“Thus, to now insinuate that it is an exercise meant to stifle the ongoing ENDSARS protest is to say the least highly misinformed. Exercise CROCODILE SMILE VI has nothing to do with the ongoing protest and the NA has never been involved in the ongoing protest in any form whatsoever. So far, the army has acted professionally since the civil protest started over two weeks ago.

“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.”

PRESS RELEASE

NIGERIAN ARMY SETS TO COMMENCE EXERCISE CROCODILE SMILE VI NATION WIDE

1. The Nigerian Army is set to start its annual Exercise CROCODILE SMILE which is traditionally conducted in the last quarter of the year. This year's Exercise CROCODILE SMILE VI is scheduled to commence from the 20th of October to the 31st of December 2020.

2. 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.

3. 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.

According to military sources;

SMILE: Extermination.
Dance means kidnap
Tears means use of dangerous chemicals.
Storm :Extermination

Please seek an injunction from court against military action on protesters.

Tell your wards to go back home now and save their lives.The protest has been hijacked and protesters will be used as a bait to achieve a dubious goal.

Buratai is lying ,he doesnt know how to send ordinary text messages on phone.

In previous years, it was restricted to few states but now they plan to do it in all states of the federation during an ongoing protest,what a coincidence!!

Not targeted at protesters... Okay...

But how do you expect Armed soldiers to peacefully mix with people on the street without chaos.

If you guys are truly sincere, then the military exercise should be postponed.

Sambisa is readily available for any kind of Military Operations

Why telling the youths that are wiser this sort of lies? Buhari better act now before the demand will metamorphosed to #Buhari-must-go. Had it bn he acted promptly within the first 2 days of the #endsars protest by directly dismantling the sars, this would have broken the protest but now, the demand is increasing, nigerians are no longer whispering, youths and adults are beginning to "sọrọ sókè"
