Following the ongoing #EndSARS protests by Nigerian youths against the brutality, illegal detention, extortions, killings and harassments carried out by the operatives of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), the Nigerian Army has promised to commence exercise Crocodile Smile VI nationwide to identify, track and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Nigerian army sets to commence exercise Crocodile Smile VI nationwide’ signed by the Acting Director Army Public Relations, Sagir Musa, on Saturday.

According to the statement, the “Crocodile Smile VI” is deliberately intended to be all-encompassing to include cyber warfare exercises designed to identify, track, and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace. 

The exercise is set to commence effectively from 20th of October to the 31st of December 2020. 

The statement read; “The Nigerian Army is set to start its annual Exercise CROCODILE SMILE which is traditionally conducted in the last quarter of the year. This year’s Exercise CROCODILE SMILE VI is scheduled to commence from the 20th of October to the 31st of December 2020. 

“The Exercise is deliberately intended to be all-encompassing to include cyber warfare exercises designed to identify, track, and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace. This is the first-ever Cyberwarfare exercise to be conducted in the history of the African Armed Forces.
“Accordingly, the exercise will also include positive identification component aimed at identifying Boko Haram terrorists fleeing from the North East and other parts of the country as a result of the ongoing operations in the various theatres of operations especially in the Northeast, North Central and North Western parts of Nigeria. 

“The Nigerian Army, once again, reassures all well-meaning Nigerians of its commitment to the sustenance of peace and security in Nigeria and urges members of the public for their support and understanding throughout the period of the exercise.”
