In a statement issued on Saturday, Musa Sagir, Army Spokesperson, said the exercise which he described as the first in the history of Africa Armed Forces, will commence from Tuesday, October 20 to December 31, 2020.

“This year’s Exercise CROCODILE SMILE V1 is scheduled to commence from the 20th of October to the 31st of December 2020,” Sagir noted in the statement.

“The Exercise is deliberately intended to be all encompassing to include cyber warfare exercises designed to identify, track and counter negative propaganda in the social media and across the cyberspace.
