In a bid to end the incessant attacks on farming communities in Plateau state, the Nigerian Army on Saturday launched a new military operation in the state, code-named Operation Hakorin Damisa IV.
Hakorin Damisa means Leopard’s teeth when translated.
The Chief of Army Staff, Major General Taoreed Lagbaja who launched the new operation in Mangu Local Government Area of the state on Saturday said the aim was specifically to end the spate of attacks and killings in Mangu local government area and other parts of the state.
Middle Belt Times had earlier reported that in the last two months, more than 300 people had been killed in Mangu local government area and other neighboring communities following a series of attacks by terrorists suspected to be herdsmen.
After addressing troops deployed to carry out Operation Hakorin Damisa, the Chief of Army Staff moved to a Pilot Primary school in the community to have a meeting with the stakeholders.
