Following the re-emergence of Nnamdi Kanu the Nigerian military has stated that they would commence another Operation Python Dance
According to the Sunday Punch, the Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen John Agim has said that the military will carry out the operation in the South-East as it seems more and more likely that the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Kanu will be making a broadcast today.
Agim also added that people could no longer say that the military had manhandled him in any way seeing as he re-emerged safe and sound.
The spokesman also added that the operation is necessary to combat any kidnapping or unscrupulous activity that could take place during this period.
“Our responsibility is to ensure that there is peace and security in the South-East region and that is the essence of Operation Python Dance.” he said.
“We are going to have another operation this year. It is to ensure that we don’t allow what happens in the North-East to happen again.
“We are having multiple operations. The court will now know the true situation of things. We said at that time that Kanu ran away, but people said the military kept him in custody. It was propaganda.”
