2 Successful Military Operations In The South East, And Why They Should Begin Another Operation

Over the years, the military has launched several operations to tackle insecurity in Nigeria and most of these operations were successful.

In this article, we'll be looking at two military operations in the South-East that were successful, and why they should begin another operation.

1. Operation Python Dance I

This military operation was nicknamed Egwu Eke I, and it was conducted from 27th November to 27th December 2016, within the five South Eastern States. This operation was reportedly designed to fight anti-social vices such as kidnapping, armed robbery and others.

During that period, heavily armed soldiers were deployed to the five eastern states, and several roadblocks were established. The army raided several hideouts of kidnappers and other criminals in the region.

What triggered the military operation was the high level of insecurity at that time. After the exercise, the region became calm for a while as many criminals were apprehended.

2. Operation Python Dance II

This military operation lasted from 15th September to 15th October 2017, and it was also observed in the South Eastern region of the country.

This was a continuation of the first Python Dance, and it was launched as a measure to stop criminal activities which were on the rise at that time.

Even though the first Python dance was successful, criminals started operating again in the region after some months and this triggered Operation Python Dance II. It was bigger than Python dance 1 because the air force was fully involved. Just like Operation Python Dance 1, the military recorded great success.

Judging from the level of insecurity in the South East at this time, the military should relaunch the operation. In just one month, many prominent men in the region have been attacked, some even lost their lives. A lot of people in the region have also been abducted, this is a great time to begin another operation.
