Nigeria: 30 unidentified corpses lying at Mararaba Medical Centre

The management of Mararaba Medical Centre in Karu Local Government Area of Nasarawa State has said that 30 unidentified corpses are in its mortuary.

Dr Ibrahim Adamu, the Medical Director of the centre, made the fact known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Mararaba on Thursday.

Adamu said that the situation was unhealthy and worrisome to both the patients and members of staff of the centre.

"These corpses have been here since 2013 with no record of ownership.

"They were brought or dumped here by the police as most of them happen to be victims of accidents or armed robbery.

"We are appealing to Karu Local Government authorities and the police to arrange for their burial.

"Evacuation of these corpses will promote, not only the health of our workers, but also health of our patients, especially those on admissions," he said.
