500 Ogun Residents Receive Free Medical Treatment from Nigerian Army

Five hundred residents around the Alamala Barrack of the 35 Artillery Brigade in Abeokuta have received free medical treatments from the Nigeria Army medical personnel as part of the ongoing Operation Crocodile Smile Six.

The empowerment programme and medical outreach held at the Army Children School Alamala was also used to empower thirty widows and orphans with freezers, grinding machines, hair dryers and sewing machines.

The General Officer Commanding 81 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major-General Godwin Umelo while declaring the event open stated that the effort was to strengthen the civil military relationship. 

He said the Operation Crocodile Smile Six focused on cyber warfare designed to identify, track and counter negative propaganda on social media and to attune men of the Nigerian Army to other security threats aimed at disrupting the peace and security of the country. 

The Commander, 35 Artillery Brigade, Alamala, Abeokuta, Brigadier General Emmanuel Amadasun while welcoming the guests noted that, the free medical outreach was facilitated due to lack of health facility in the area. 

The Traditional ruler of the community the Onijale of Papa, Oba Michael Babalola thanked the Nigeria Army for the exercise, describing the programme as impactful.

Some beneficiaries applauded the Nigeria Army for giving back to the community noting that it would improve their businesses and well-being.

The beneficiaries were drawn from the communities around the Alamala barrack and widows within the barrack.
