Abstract: Nigeria from the days of colonialism has always been involved in internal crises. Even, in the recent times, there are still clear indications of internal crises witnessed in different forms of conflict ranging from sectarian to ethno religious crises, wholesale abduction, hostage taking, arson, incidents of cattle rustling and terrorism in some parts of the Country. The study investigated the role of the military in the maintenance of internal security and human rights in Nigeria: An assessment of the Operation Python Dance in Abia State..A simple random sampling technique was used to select respondents from the six major cites of the state. The data were analyzed using Correlation analysis to measure the relationships between the different variables. Systems theory provided the theoretical frame work for the study. The findings indicated that, military campaigns in civil related conflicts had caused more damages than solve the problems that warranted the operations and it violated human rights of many Nigerians. The paper ended with proffering a number of recommendations which included that there should be adequate training of the military before being deployed in civilian crises. Government should use all medium available to ensure that the least educated person was aware of his or her rights in relation to all the law enforcement agents as it would go a long way in reducing the incidence of human right violations.Also, Economic development should be used as a distinct strategy for conflict resolution and crises management.
