As part of activities lined up for the field training exercise, nicknamed ‘Operation Crocodile Smile’, troops of 2 Brigade, 82 Division of the Nigerian Army, yesterday touched the lives of over 500 people within Bille Community in Degema Local Government Area (LGA) of Rivers State, with free medical outreach.

The free medical services, according to a statement issued on Sunday by Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Kukasheka Usman, featured consultation, diagnosis and eye care, blood pressure checks, free drugs, blood tests and counseling services.

A similar exercise, the Army also said, was held at Nembe Ogbolomabiri and Bassambiri in   Bayelsa State on the same day, with impressive turnout. At all locations, the beneficiaries of the services expressed happiness with the outreach.

The Brigade said it has further sensitised the communities on the impending military training exercise, tagged ‘Operation Crocordile Smile’, and enjoined them to go about their normal businesses as it is aimed at exercising the Troops in the Niger Delta region in amphibious operations.
