BREAKING: Soldiers Take Over Streets of #EndSars Protest in Abuja
Soldiers have been stationed in strategic places in the federal capital territory (FCT).
The military officers were stationed at the popular Aya roundabout early Monday morning, with a roadblock and barricade.
The #EndSARS protests have persisted for more than a week across the country.
The army had issued a statement, saying it would embark on a nationwide operation codenamed ‘Crocodile Smile’.
A statement issued by the Army Spokesperson Musa Sagir on Saturday noted that the exercise, scheduled to commence from October 20 to December 31, 2020, has no relationship with any lawful protest under any guise whatsoever.
“For the records, Exercise Crocodile Smile is a yearly exercise in the Nigerian Army calendar/forecast of events which traditionally holds from October to December of each year,” the statement read in part.
