army
The Nigerian Army is bracing up for a lock down in Nigeria following the outbreak of Coronavirus in Nigeria.

In a classified document from the office of Chief of Army Staff, Yusuf Buratai, addressed to Army Headquarters, signed by Lt Gen L.O. Adeosun and seen by SaharaReporters on Tuesday, personnel were advised to be on the alert as they could be deployed to various parts of the country in the coming days to help in the fight against Coronavirus in Nigeria.

The document disclosed that the army may likely get involved in an operation codenamed SECOND ELEVEN to help stop the spread of the virus.

It reads in part;

“All Nigeria Army schools and training centres including the Army War College are to be closed down, while the closing hour for all formations and units has been pegged to 4:00pm except for those on essential duties.

“Planning on lease of excavators, truck, water tankers and other relevant vehicles to aid OP SECOND ELEVEN in the area of possible mass burial, water and essential food/drug supplies, forceful transfer of the sick to the hospital, enforcement of government movement restriction order, etc will be part of it.”

The operatioin will also see military personnel securing major food stores and government storage facilities for essential goods from looting, while also coordinating with the police and other law enforcement agencies in enforcing the restriction of movement and other directives from government.
