The Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Farouk Yahaya, launched a new military operation in Enugu State on Monday, October 4, 2021. The operation is codenamed "Operation Golden Dawn" and it is intended to tackle the insecurity in the southern part of the country, particularly the South East.
The South East region is currently battling with insecurity. Gunmen suspected to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra are causing unrest in the region.
Many security officers have been assassinated on duty by the rampaging gunmen. Many police stations and INEC offices have been set ablaze by the hoodlums.
The militants have started targeting harmless civilians and disrupting the economic activities of the people of the South East.
The military operation launched on Monday is very much needed in the South East region.
Recall that the military launched a similar operation in the South East in 2017 during the administration of the former Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai. The operation was codenamed "Operation Python Dance".
Prior to the launching of the operation, IPOB militants had already gathered at the leader's residence in Abia State in an attempt to undermine national security. Operation Python Dance dismantled the militants and forced them to abolish their mission then.
Operation Golden Dawn should be an advanced format of the Operation Python Dance. The military shouldn't take it lightly with the hoodlums terrorizing the South East.
They invited the python again, and they should dance to its music.
