Flood chases dead bodies out of mortuary in Lagos state
Corpses have been dislodged from a private mortuary in the Igando area of Lagos state, after some parts of the state was flooded.
The management of the private facility, Toluwalase Hospital Morgue, located at Otunba Oladokun Street in the area, raised the alarm.
It said corpses in the mortuary have been evacuated by the flood.
Bolaji Oluwafemi, manager of the mortuary said the area was always flooded when ever it rains heavily.
Oluwafemi said the State Government had ignored repeated complaints from the hospital management.
He said, “There is the lingering need for proper channelization of water and the sand filling of the lowland in the area. It has paralyzed our business as everybody has moved out of their houses to live in the available dry land outside of their premises.
“We have been living outside in our cars. All the tenants and landlords are out of their houses. On Monday, a woman was searching for her daughter in the flood while others hurried out of their houses.”
Residents also confirmed that corpses were seen floating in the flood.
