The Army statement reads that the exercise is specifically designed to identify, track and counter negative propaganda in the cyber space.

While assuring Nigerians of the Army’s commitment to sustain peace and security, the exercise would likely bring the Army in confrontation with Nigerians on the streets of Major cities in the country as protest against police brutality tagged “EndSARS” has been ongoing for over 10 days unabated and gaining a more coordinated momentum.

Reports from an online source reveals that this cancellation takes immediate effect due to protest against government regulation that requires crew members to be subjected to the same protocol as international travellers arriving and departing from South Africa.

South Africa eased its Coronavirus lockdown regulations from 1st October allowing international tourist and business passengers from predetermined low risk countries to arrive on its shores.
