Authorities of Chikun Local Government Council of Kaduna State have given families of the 49 unidentified and unclaimed corpses deposited at the morgue of Sabon Tasha General Hospital five days to claim their corpses.
The chairman of the local government, Salasi Nuhu Musa, who disclosed this in Kaduna on Thursday, said after expiration of the deadline the corpses would be given a mass burial, explained that the corpses were deposited at different times by police operatives from Toll Gate Division and Kasuwan Magani Police Station.
“The names of 25 of the 49 corpses were listed, while the remaining 24 could not be identified because they had no means of identification on them when their bodies were deposited at the morgue.
“The Chikun Local Government Council has gotten the approval of the Kaduna State Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Local Government Affairs to carry out the burial of 49 unknown and unclaimed corpses.
“The Kaduna State Ministries of Health and that of Local Government Affairs in their letters referenced MOH/ADM/110/VOL.III dated 30th August, 2022 and S/MLG/373/TA/28 dated 4th October, 2022 respectively, directed that a committee be set up to investigate and verify the circumstances surrounding the deposited corpses,” he said.
