The Nigerian Army “Operation Python Dance” in the South-East says some of its road blocks will be dismantled to facilitate free flow of traffic during the Yuletide.

Col. Musa Sagir, Deputy Director, Public Relations of 82 Division Nigerian Army, Enugu, disclosed this while on patrol with newsmen at the River Niger Bridge head, Onitsha, and Awka, on Sunday.

Sagir said that it had become imperative to remove totally or shorten some of the check points, particularly within the bridge head, Onitsha, as the Yuletide drew closer.

He called on other security agencies operating within the bridge head to support the Army to ensure free flow of traffic in the area.

He said that the operation was not to witch-hunt any group or individuals but it was purely for military training and crime prevention.
“Our men stay on the side of road watching in case of any criminality and obstruction on the road.

“You have seen that we are not looking for any group or individual to arrest since our operation started on Nov. 27 and will end on Dec. 27 in the five eastern states.

“The Nigerian Army has to ensure safety, peace and security, and to ensure that Nigeria’s security challenges are reduced to the barest minimum.

“No holidays for all the military personnel in the South-East throughout the period of the exercise,” Sagir said. (Daily Trust)
