The Nigerian Army has changed its operation exercise name, Python Dance (Egwu Eke) to Dance of Peace (Atilogwu Udo).
This was announced by the Operations Media Coordinator of the Nigerian Army, Colonel Aminu Iliyasu.
The exercise which was launched in 2016 was carried out in the South East to fight criminal activities like kidnapping, armed robbery, inter-cult, communal clash among others.
However, Colonel Iliyasu said the activities of the exercise remains the same.
The statement reads, “The Chief of Army Staff Lieutenant General Tukur Yusufu Buratai wishes to reiterate the commitment of the Nigerian Army in protecting the lives and properties of citizens particularly during these ember months and the fast-approaching Yuletide season.
“He also wishes to further solicit the support and understanding of all well-meaning Nigerians towards providing a well-secured environment for all and sundry.”
