More that 300 residents of Ijora Community in Lagos benefited from a free medical service organised by the Nigerian Navy on Saturday.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports the free treatment was part of activities marking the 61st-anniversary celebration of the Navy.

The programme included free consultation, HIV/AIDS screening and provision of drugs to patients.

Represented by Surgeon Commander Ugowchi Nzeribe of Western Naval Command, the Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Adm. Ibok-Ette Ibas, said the exercise was part of Navy’s corporate social responsibility.

He said that through the free medical outreach, the Nigeria Navy hoped to enhance the health status of Nigerians and improve the civil/military relationship.

“The Navy is organising a medical outreach across all its commands and we have graciously chosen Ijora community for this year’s outreach.

“This a demonstration of the Navy’s commitment towards rendering corporate social responsibility to its host community.

“We are rendering free health talks, medical check-up and consultations, laboratory investigations, malaria and blood sugar tests and drugs,’’ Ibas said.
