Osun varsity hospital plans mass burial for abandon corpses

By News Desk

The management of Osun State University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, has issued a 14-day ultimatum to residents and non-residents yet to retrieve bodies left in its mortuary to do so, saying after this window, the corpses will be subjected to mass burial.

It said that the corpses that could be subjected to mass burial were those brought into the hospital’s mortuary unit between January 2019 and June 2023.

The varsity stated that the mortuary of the hospital has been congested with unclaimed bodies.

The hospital, in a statement released on Saturday, noted that it would resort to mass burial of all unclaimed bodies after 14 days of the announcement as an alternative to decongest the mortuary.

“The management of UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Osogbo wishes to inform the general public that the hospital’s mortuary is presently congested and crowded with unclaimed bodies.

“In view of this development, the management hereby calls on relatives who have corpses in the mortuary unit of the hospital between January 2019 and June 2023 to come and retrieve them within 14 days of this announcement.

“It should be noted that the management will resort to mass burial of all unclaimed bodies after 14 days of this announcement as an alternative to decongest the mortuary.”

Usually, corpses of some accident victims remain unclaimed on hospitals because sometimes, their relatives may not be aware of their whereabouts.

Some relatives of deceased persons also avoid claiming their corpses because of accumulated bills.
