Operation Python Dance 3: Deploy Army to farms, construction sites, Ohanaeze tells FG

By: dayan (M) |Time : August 22, 2018, 08:06:43 PM
OHANAEZE Ndigbo has called on the Federal Government to deploy officers and men of the Armed Forces to farms, road construction sites and engage them for city beautification purposes if there are no more defence jobs for them, rather than using them to cause undue panic in the polity.

Ohanaeze’s spokesman, Chuks Ibegbu, who stated this in the backdrop of the proposed Operation Python Dance 3 in the South East, wondered why the operation is germane  when the zone is very peaceful. He therefore, warned against intimidation of innocent citizens under any guise.

He said: “Nigeria Army should by now be producing medium range missiles and ammunitions for which Nigeria is spending billlions of naira that should have been used to develop the country. Rather, they produce only salt and light weapons at DICON and spend the rest of their time intimidating innocent Nigerians.

“We need a peoples Army and security agencies and not intimidators. Let the Army go and produce food for its personnel in Army farms and sell the rest to Nigerian citizens.”

On the arrest of some female IPOB loyalists in Owerri, Ibegbu warned against harming any of the women as they committed no offence to warrant such arrest.

“Which IPOB did they say they proscribed because I’m aware there is an IPOB headed by Justice Eze Ozobu. In as much as our position is the restructuring of Nigeria, there is no justification for harrassing and arresting unarmed peaceful women for expresssing their lawful and fundamental rights, even if we do not agree with them,” Ibegbu noted.

He called for their immediate release and apologies for such unlawful arrests.

On the mass grave said to have been discovered at Asa in Ukwa West Local Government Area of Abia State, Ibegbu called “on the National Human Rights Commission, ECOWAS, AU, UN, ICC and other human rights groups to thorougly investigate the report with   a view to authenticating or faulting it and if true, identify the culprits and the victims.”

I have never hidden the fact that I believe that Nigerian army has real potentials to be great, building upon its existing foundations.
But this military keeps shooting itself in the foot as a result of being deployed against UNARMED CIVILIANS.

Pray, how can a military gain the respect of fellow citizens and foreigners when they avoid fights in conflict zones (of the North East) and then deploy against unarmed citizens of the country they are supposed to be defending?

Let me put it another way...

If due to these deployments, the Igbo and their neighbours in eastern Nigeria develop hatred and disloyalty to the country, how can this army defend against 60 million angry compatriots?

Clearly this army cannot win such MASSIVE disloyalty to the country.

I don't know who makes these idiotic decisions to deploy the army against the most peaceful zones in the country.

This point is often being made by some of the people who believe in Biafra.
They say that a Biafran military would parade an army whose average intelligence quotient (IQ) of its soldiers would rival that of Israel.
They say that a Biafran airforce would parade the best fighter pilots in air dominance and flying of air dominance fighter jets as Israel does.
Most eastern Nigerians (and maybe other Nigerians) are frustrated that Nigerian military lack the IQ to stop seeing the unarmed citizen as enemy.

My concern is that those who make that argument wins every time this type of brainless deployments happen, particularly since Boko Haram remains undefeated, and Fulani herdsmen remain armed and roaming the crannies of the country unchallenged.

All Nigerians should be working hard to make citizens retain their belief, faith and loyalty in the country.
But this military keeps undermining all of that effort through brainless deployments.
Tufiakwa.
