Operation Python Dance Launches Free Medicals In Southeast
As part of the effort to enable peace reign in an atmosphere of good health, the Nigerian Army has launched a free medical outreach in Ovim, Isuikwuato Local Government Area of Abia State.
This is one of the steps taken by the soldiers in the ongoing Python Dance II exercise in the South-East of the country.
In a statement signed by the Deputy Director of Public Relations, 82 Division, Col. Sagir Musa, the medical exercise has been a success since it began a few days ago.
The statement noted that the exercise was a directive by the Chief of Army Staff, Maj.-Gen. Tukur Buratai and had since attracted such personality as the former Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Azubuike Ihejirika.
“One interesting aspect of the exercise is the generous donations of rice, dental and optometry services, malaria and de-worming tablets, eyeglasses, treated mosquito nets to the locals, among others,” the statement clarified.
The exercise allows children to deworm while they were also given biscuits, chewing gum to make them happy.
The Operation Python Dance II stormed Abia a few weeks ago to stop the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra and its leader, Nnamdi Kanu.
The Nigerian Government had since declared IPOB as a terrorist organization.
