Many corpses have been abandoned in Morgues by Nigerians, the general overseer of Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship Ministry Sabon Tasha Kaduna, Pastor Yohanna Buru has said.
Speaking on Friday, May 6, 2016 in Kaduna, Pastor Buru said as a result of preparation for decent burial, some tribes and cultures contribute in keeping corpses for long time before burial which according has a devastating effect.
The Cleric appealed to all Nigerians to redouble efforts in sanitizing the environment of grave-yard that is becoming too bad and disastrous.
He said in other to make grave yard look clean and beautiful, indescribable dumping of refuse and transporting of animal in the premises must be avoided.
Pastor Buru called on both state and Federal government, civil society, non-governmental organization and environmental officer to immediately extend humanitarian services toward sanitizing cemeteries.
The cleric also said that use of insecticide, pesticide and other dangerous chemicals at cemeteries has devastating effect.
"The use of insecticides at the grave-yard premises for killing grasses, in view of the health hazard and the danger of suck chemical to the soil should be avoided."
