The exercise was recently launched by the army in South East Nigeria to ensure security of the area.
Chairman of International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law (Intersociety), Emeka Umeagbalasi, called it a declaration of Jihad against the zone.
According to him, the army’s internal security should not translate to psychological war against a particular ethnic group, especially at a period it is known they return home to celebrate Yuletide
“The army’s occupation tagged ‘Operation Python’ is nothing but a plot to subject the entire South East to untold hardship, torture and extortion,’’ he alleged.
The road blocks already created by the soldiers on major roads in the South East were already creating hardship for the people even before the Yuletide, he said.
He also condemned the government over the excesses of fulani herdsmen. With several massacres they had perpetrated in the country, especially in Southern Kaduna, FG and the Army have not set up operation to checkmate their actions, he said.
He urged the Federal Government and the Army authorities to immediately dismantle the road blocks.
