    the nigerian navy explained why the used air power to dismantle vandals camps and arepo creeks

     yesterday the nigerian navy explained that its resolve to use air power to dismantle
    vandals camps and shanties in the  Arepo creeks in Ogun state  was borne
     out of difficulty to access the terrain on water and land.

    In a joint Military  operation code named “AWATSE” a Hausa word for ‘to
    scatter’ the first aerial bombardment was launched Thursday evening on
    Iroko creeks in Arepo.

    It was gathered that the militants who have built a colony  in the
    creeks attempted to repel the Military but were overwhelmed by the
    aerial bombardment.

    In their confusion, some of them were said to have mounted a GPMG weapon
      in two wooden boats , in an attempt to fire at  the Military but were
    forced to abandon their weapons owing to the sporadic shots.

    Unconfirmed report had in that lives were lost during the operation but
    the Flag Officer Commanding Western Naval Command of the Nigerian Navy,
    Rear Admiral Ferguson Bobai stated while briefing journalists yesterday,
     that it was too early to ascertain the number of casualty, as nobody
    had been able to access the terrain either by land or by water
