The Kogi State Government on Saturday buried 130 unclaimed dead bodies.

DAILY POST gathered that the deceased persons are victims of accidents, robbery, and kidnapping who have been deposited at the Federal Medical Centers, Lokoja for several months without families or relations claiming their remains.

The dead bodies were buried at the Felele Cemetery in Lokoja, Kogi State.

Speaking during the mass burial of the deceased victims, the general manager, Kogi State Sanitation and Waste Management Board, Mrs. Arokoyo Elizabeth said the agency is backed by law to ensure the environment is safe for habitation stressing that, the dead bodies have stayed too long in the hospital.

Represented by the Acting Secretary of the Board, Sanitarian Ajayi Olufemi, she said the dead bodies were brought to the mortuary by the Nigeria Police Force and Federal Road Safety Corps, (FRSC).

According to her, many announcements had been made via various media organizations for the bodies to be claimed by family members or relations, but all proved abortive.
