The Maiduguri diocese of the Church of Nigeria Anglican communion on Sunday laid the foundation of an ultra modern trauma centre for displaced victims of Boko Haram insurgency.

The centre, according to the Bishop of the Maiduguri Diocese, Emmanuel Mani, who performed the stone laying ceremony, is expected to discharge post trauma services to thousands of persons around its locality.
The Bishop said though the centre belongs to the Anglican Communion, its services will cut across all religions and denominations.
Mr. Mani, a retired army chaplain, said the church will spend about N15 million on the project.
“The good thing about this project is that government engineers who provided the plan and are supervising the project are doing it free of charge,” he said. “When we went to the Ministry of Health to inform them of our plans to establish a health clinic and trauma centre within the church premises, they were highly delighted and encouraged us to go ahead with the project.
“What they also told us is not to restrict the hospital to the church only but to make it open to other faith aside the IDPs, so that all communities will benefit from the gesture.”
The clinic and trauma Centre is designed to have a labour ward, mini theatre, pharmacy and a laboratory.
“This is a diocesan hospital for all of us. We are going to use our doctors, nurses, and all health workers both retired and serving to render services for the community and we hope that this services would be free of charge,” the cleric said. (TVC)
