The Nigerian Army on Thursday said it has begun free medical services in Konduga community of Borno State.
The army spokesperson, Sani Usman, in a statement said the free medical care which would last for three days – August 12 to 14 – is for the internally displaced persons in the area.
The immediate health needs of the displaced persons will be catered for during the exercise.
Mr. Usman said, “Already, personnel of Nigerian Army Medical Corps have been attending to numerous persons that turned up for the exercise.”
Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced since the Boko Haram insurgency in northern Nigeria began in 2009 with almost 20,000 killed.
