Army cleans-up Lagos communities ahead of anniversary
The exercise which started at about 7am, saw army personnel under the division cleaning up the Tinubu Square and Idumota Market, Lagos Island, parts of Ikeja, Surulere, Ikorodu and Epe areas of the state.
Led by the Chief of Army Standard and Evaluation, Maj.-Gen. Adekunle Shodunke, the team deployed to Tinubu Square cleared refuse dumps and drainages removing all plastic waste obstructing free flow of water.
He said: “We as part of the society see this sanitation exercise as part of our corporate social responsibility to help clean the environment and make it better than the way it is.
Aside the sanitation, Shodunke said the army will carry out a medical rhapsody within its host communities.
