The Nigerian Army said it had concluded plans to start cyber warfare to identify, track, and counter any negative propaganda in social media and across the cyberspaces.
Colonel Sagir Musa, Acting Director, Army Public Relations, indicated in a statement released on Saturday that the exercise is included in the annual Crocodile Smile exercise. It will be the first-ever cyber warfare exercise conducted in the history of the Africa Armed Forces.
“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 is scheduled to commence from the 20th October to 31st December 2020”, the statement stated.
The statement also pointed out that the exercise will also include positive identification components that will identify and fish out Boko Haram members fleeing to other parts of the country from the Northeast.
“The Nigerian Army wants to reassure all well-meaning Nigerians of its commitment to the sustenance of peace and security in Nigeria and urges members of the public for support and understanding throughout the period of the exercise,” it pleaded.
