The group’s spokesman, Eric Omare alleged that the military men involved in Operation Crocodile Smile are intimidating innocent civilians in the Niger Delta.
Omare also said villagers in the Warri and Forcados rivers in Delta, are constantly intimidated.
According to him, “From Monday till this morning, several people going to communities like Ogulagha, Odimodi, Ijaw Oborotu, Forcados and other surrounding communities are denied access to these communities.
”This development has now resulted in cases of communities having shortage of food with possible humanitarian crisis.
”This is condemnable and totally unacceptable, the military must have respect for human rights in their activities in the Niger Delta.”
The Ijaw group spokesman also said indigenes are sometimes denied access to their villages or harassed.
The Defence Headquarters said Operation Crocodile Smile is not aimed at intimidating the people of the Niger Delta.
