Operation Crocodile Smile’ – The Nigerian Army has taken to the street in Abuja, pursuing protesters on the EndSars movement – see details below.
The EndSars protests which has inevitably caused a huge unrest in the Nigerian society is still very much on the increase.
Recently, the northern state of Kano has joined in the protest for peace and equity and also for the “call off” of the continuous brutality of the Sars officials towards young Nigerians. The northern youths were seen in their hundreds as they join the southern counterpart in protest to the EndSars.
The Nigerian army had initially announced and made known their intention of commencing their regular exercise called the “operation crocodile smile” in all the nook and cranny of the country.
You quite remember the operation crocodile smile ordeal that transpired between the Nigerian army and the Biafran group and IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu back then in Abia State when there were making a move for a republican state? A reenactment of this is beginning to erupt in Abuja EndSars protest.
About a day ago in Abuja, soldiers were seen on the street with their heavy trucks and tanks which have already be rolled out into the city to curb any form of unrest or menace.
The army yesterday, had responded to calls to use the barest minimum force in the protest. Speaking through the army spokesman or representative, it was made clear that the exercise was not mearnt to fight protesters, the statement also clarified the reasons for the exercise which was to protect the protesters and prevent the protest from hijackers.
Despite the information from the army, some soldiers were spotted harassing protesters as they chased and pursued them across the streets of Abuja.
Below are reactions this singular act of the soldiers in Abuja prompted;
WHEN THE PROTESTS MATURE TO FULL BLOWN ANARCHY NOTE THE FOLLOWING ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU KNOW AND LOVE:
The 14 to 45 year old males will be bearing arms directly whether or not they like it. About half of them will die within the first year of conflict. At least 30% of females in this age range will be raped and probably killed.
The bulk of 0 to 13 year olds will grow up as orphans. 10% will be killed in the first year and another 50% will perish from neglect in subsequent years.
The population above from 46 to 65 years will have their dreams finally destroyed and will die out rapidly from lack of a will to survive the hardship and stress.
The population above 66 years will have no support to survive and will die slow lonely deaths, some through starvation and neglect.
Crime rates will multiply ten fold given the unbridled access to arms and ammunition. There will be no safe havens given current trends.
Life expectancy will drop to 21 years from the current 47 years.
If the conflict lasts longer than one year the worlds largest refugee problem would have been created. Nigerians will flee into Niger,Togo, Ghana, Chad, Benin Republic and Cameroon. A one way journey for most as these countries are completely unprepared for the potential influx of humiliated Nigerians.
Through CNN, Aljazeera, SABC, BBC and other media houses we will become the global laughing stock with no idea of what next to do.
Present day uncompromising voices will run away to safety. Shamelessly so. The afore mentioned victims will be drawn from ordinary folk.
No one (North, South, East, or West, Christian, Muslim etc) will be immune.
BETTER TO TALK PEACEFULLY,EVERY ARTICLE OF RELATIONSHIP AS A NATION CAN BE NEGOTIATED PEACEFULLY.
Let us all watch the way we approach the situation to not make it worsen!
Let’s reason together! What can we do? We need Peace! Love! Oneness of heart!
