Operation Golden Dawn: Ohanaeze Fear Return Of Python To Dance In Igboland

The apex Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo worldwide has expressed worries over the recently launched military operation in the South-East, codenamed, ‘Operation Golden Dawn’.

Ohanaeze, in a statement signed by its Secretary-General, Okechukwu Isiguzoro, alleged that the actions of the previous Operation Python Dance was responsible for the increased violence and insecurity in the South-East.

The group further alleged that the new military operation may be a return of the python to Igboland for another round of 'The dance'.

Expressing similar sentiments as Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria (HURIWA), Ohanaeze said it feared the new military operation may result in a brutal crackdown characterized by intimidations, harassment of passengers and motorists, killings and dumping of corpses of suspected Biafra agitators especially members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) in the bushes, and unlawful incarceration of innocent people as witnessed in previous operations.

It therefore urged that the Nigerian Army abide by the rules of engagement with high levels of professionalism based on military ethical standards, stressing that the operation must be devoid of any kind of ethnic cleansing and dishonesty.
