It was a pleasant surprise for residents of Ikoyi and other communities in Lagos as over 100 naval officers engaged in the clean-up exercise in a bid to foster civil-military relations.
The Commander, Nigerian Navy Ship (NNS) WEY, Commodore Uduak Ibanga, led the team of officers and soldiers in the exercise.
The team helped in clearing refuse dumps and drains blocked by empty bottles of water, polythene bags and other waste materials.
Commodore Ibanga said the action has displayed the selfless service of the navy to host communities and promote cordial Civil-Military Relations for peaceful and mutually beneficial co-existence.
The personnel are expected to carry out similar exercise in other parts of Lagos, to encourage residents to maintain clean and healthy environment for healthy living.
