The Military Operation known as Operation Crocodile Smile on Monday suffered major loss following a boat accident along the Brass
Water Front in Brass Local Government Area of Bayelsa, leading to the death of four soldiers by drowning. Also missing are service rifles belonging to the missing soldiers.
LEADERSHIP gathered that the incident,which occured at about 10am on Monday, created panic among newly deployed soldiers. Though LEADERSHIP could not confirm the mission of the Soldiers in the area,it is not unconnected to the security operations against renewed militancy,sea piracy and search for those threatening to hoist the Niger Delta Republic flag.
