Feb 20, 2018 – Nigerian Army Begins Operation Cat Dance To Tackle Killer Herdsmen In Benue State

COAS Lt General Tukur Burutai, has launched military exercise otherwise known as “Ayem Akpatuma” in Gbajimba, Guma LGA of Benue State.

The exercise is meant to flush out killer herdsmen in Benue, especially in Guma and Logo local government areas.

Lt. General Buratai stated that the Cat dance is not a full army operations but a joint Military training exercise that would help familiarize the army troops to the challenge of internal security in the state.

He revealed that the training exercise is been conducted with other services of the armed forces as well as other security services especially the police, SSS and other paramilitary organizations.

Burutai noted that it is not necessary to trace the history of the challenge that parts of the country is facing, adding that it is the hope and expectations of everyone that at the end of the exercise, things will be normalized.

“The training exercise is a way of contributing our own quarters to ensure that we support the civil authority and ensure that peace is restored in the country”.

According to him, Ayem Akpatuma has become more expedient due to upsurge in cases of armed banditry, kidnapping and Herdsmen and Farmers clashes.

He said during the training exercise, the troops will cover the entire state and solicit the cooperation of the Benue people so that the aim and objectives of the exercise would be achieved.

In his remark, Benue state Governor, Samuel Ortom thanked President Buhari for the deployment of soldiers to the state to help address the security challenges facing the state.

    Operation crap.i wonder if our military can stand external aggression ,even cameroonian troops invaded cross river state and nothing was heard from our military command.south east was invaded simply because a freedom crusader wanted to liberate his people ,fulani herdsmen have been killing in the south and middle belt for donkey months but buharis ear ache resurfaced and he couldnt hear about it neither will his eye glasses see it.people have lambasted him abroad especially other heads of state.too late for such exercise because u may be forced to resign just like zuma and ethiopian called coalition forces may kill /descend on innocent people and parade them as herdsmen .too late to act mr dullard

    NO BE ONLY Cat dance, na FISH Swim.
    Buhari thinks he‘s smart. This medicine after death‘s operation bullshit he now launch in Benue came because of the overwhelming rumours he might have heard about gov Ortum possible defection to PDP.

    AGAIN He now sense that the Benue people now knew better as election draws near, and they are likely to speak with their PVCs at the pool.
    Hausa nama wey wan show sey im get sense.

    Ever since this boko haram kingpin was made a president of Nigeria, a position he never really deserve in the first place, I have been one of the vioces on this forum that keeps reminding anyone who care to read my comment that he is up to no good for Nigeria.

    Back then there was always a strong argument between Omokehinde and few smart commentators who shared my observation.
    Wonder where that buhari ass-licker called Omokehinde is right now. Anywhere you are if you are reading this, come out and defend your man now.
    Remember that even your own people were not spare of the herdsmen onslaught too.
    Loyalist indeed!

    God‘s punishment is hanging loose on buhari and all his stupid supporters!

    Operation Cat dance my ass. How does that raised the over 100 innocent people that were slaughtered in their homes in their God‘s given father‘s land? If any thing the said operation should be called “CATTLE CHASE“ not cat dance.

    I take a stroll…
