Daily Trust - - HEALTH - By Emma Elekwa, Awka

The Nige­rian Army has pro­vided free med­i­cal screen­ing and treat­ment to over 1,250 peo­ple in Nzam com­mu­nity in Anam­bra West Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Area of Anam­bra State.

The Nige­rian Army med­i­cal team from Onit­sha Mil­i­tary Can­ton­ment Med­i­cal Re­cep­tion Sta­tion (MRS) car­ried out the ex­er­cise in com­mem­o­ra­tion of this year’s Army Day.

The of­fi­cer in charge of MRS, Cap­tain Cas­mir Okpe, said the free med­i­cal out­reach was to foster cor­dial re­la­tion­ship be­tween the army and other cit­i­zenry, adding that the team also of­fered med­i­cal coun­sel­ing and gen­eral health aware­ness.

The tra­di­tional ruler of Nzam com­mu­nity, Igwe John Ogugua and the Pres­i­den­tGen­eral Nzam De­vel­op­ment Union, Prince Uche Okolo, thanked the Nige­rian Army for ex­tend­ing the kind ges­ture to their com­mu­nity.
