Operation Python Dance II: Withdraw troops from South East now – Fani-Kayode urges FG

Chief Femi Fani-Kayode

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, called on the Federal Government to urgently withdraw military men sent to the South-East on Operation Python Dance II.

The ex-minister in a statement, lamented that behaviour of the military against a defenceless and unarmed civilian population in Abia state was reprehensible.

He said: What has Nnamdi Kanu or indeed the Igbo people done to warrant this primitive show of barbarism and force? We are on the brink of a total breakdown of law and order and a prolonged and bloody armed conflict.

‘I urge restraint on all sides and I call on President Muhammadu Buhari to withdraw the army from the East and leave Nnamdi Kanu alone.

Terrorising your own people with soldiers is not the act of a courageous man …. We call on the international community to bear witness to what is unfolding in Nigeria and we will hold the government responsible and accountable in the event of any loss of life.’’
