The Nigerian Army has carried out free medical services to some communities in Makurdi Local Government Area of Benue State.

The Commanding Officer of 72 Special Forces Battalion, Lt-Col A. D. Alhassan, during the exercise at the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) camp in Makurdi, Thursday, said the gesture was part of the army’s corporate social responsibility.

“The Nigerian Army is embarking on this exercise to further beef up security in order to ensure residents of the state enjoy the remaining part of the year in a peaceful environment,” he said.

He urged residents to volunteer useful information to the army in order to curb insecurity.

The commander explained that the free medical outreach was meant to support the healthcare of the people.

On his part, the Chairman of Makurdi Local Government Area, Anthony Dygeh, commended the Nigerian Army for the exercise and urged the people to take part in the medical outreach.
