Nigerian Airforce gives free medical Treatment to prisoners
No fewer than 1,000 returning Internally Displaced Persons in Gwoza local government of Borno State, have received free medical treatment from the Nigerian Air Force.
The health intervention dealt with issues which include eye related problems, deworming of children, general checkup for nursing and pregnant mothers as well as distribution of free mosquito nets.
Confirming the free medical treatments to newsmen, the Director Humanitarian Services of the Nigerian Air Force, Air Commodore Harold Onyechi noted that the outreach programme would be continious.
The IDPS, who were mostly elderly people, expressed delights over the efforts of the Air Force which supplement the overstretched resources of a team of community health workers operating in Gwoza.
Also speaking to newsmen, the commanding officer of the composite group medical Centre, wing commander Solomon Irmiya, disclosed future health intervention plans to be embarked by the Nigerian air force.
It is worthy to note that the health intervention is the first to be embarked by the Nigerian Air Force in Gwoza since its liberation
