Tuesday, the Nigerian Army commenced Operation Crocodile Smile III on Bakassi Local Government Areas of Cross River State.
The operation, which was flagged off by the state Governor, Ben Ayade was aimed at checkmating cases of kidnapping, militancy and armed robbery in the area.
Speaking during the flag off, Ayade said the flag off would also help to maintain “peace and orderliness during the annual Calabar festival and the 2019 polls.”
Ayade stated that the exercise will reduce the proliferation of arms through the Cameroon border at Ikang in Bakassi.
The Governor commended the Nigerian Army for remaining disciplined and “very professional in the discharge of their constitutional duties.”
He also called on all security agencies to work in harmony with a view to bringing the security challenges across the country under control.
Ayade further warned politicians to desist from moving arms and sponsoring violence in the state.
According to Ayade, “As the 2019 general elections draw closer, I want to use this opportunity to warn politicians to desist from moving arms and sponsoring violence at polling units.
“As the Chief Security Officer of the state, I will work with security agencies to ensure that anyone caught is prosecuted.”
