The Defence Headquarters (DHQ), Abuja, said on Saturday that the military would conduct another round of Operation Python Dance in the South-East, since there were clearer indications that the founder of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, has resurfaced from his hideout.

The military authorities also said the court would take necessary steps to continue his prosecution.

The Director of Defence Information, Brig. Gen John Agim, who stated this in an interview on Saturday, added that the sudden appearance of Kanu in public, has proved that the military did not manhandle or assault him as was being widely alleged.

Agim said the conduct of Python Dance in the South-East region was necessary to combat any form of kidnapping and armed robbery as the end of the year neared.

The Defence spokesperson added that the military would launch a fresh operation in the region this year to ensure peace.

He said, “Our responsibility is to ensure that there is peace and security in the South-East region and that is the essence of Operation Python Dance.

“We are going to have another operation this year. It is to ensure that we don’t allow what happens in the North-East to happen again.

“We are having multiple operations. The court will now know the true situation of things. We said at that time that Kanu ran away, but people said the military kept him in custody. It was propaganda.”
