Army set for Operation Crocodile Smile in Ogun


To address the security challenges in Ogun and its environs, the Nigerian Army said on Sunday that it had concluded  plans to launch a new security initiative code named “Operation Crocodile Smile.”

The Brigade Commander of the 35  Artillery Brigade, Alamala, Abeokuta, Basil Adoke, disclosed this in Abeokuta  at a reception organised by the state government as part of activities to mark Nigeria’s 57th independence anniversary.



Adoke, who  said that the initiative  would commence ” in the next couple of days” across the state and its environs, is  targeted at  miscreants.

“ We are going to start Operation Crocodile Smile in Ogun and it involves series of actions to step up tempo targeted at  miscreants,” Adoke said.

The commander,  who allayed fears over the initiative, called on  residents to be calm, stressing that some miscreants had  been identified and  would be flushed out.

‘Though the state is relatively peaceful but we still have some miscreants to deal with, so when you see Crocodile Smile, don’t be scared,” he said.

According to him, the exercise  is a replica of  Operation Python Dance recently carried out  in Abia  to tackle crime
