The management of the Ekiti State University
Teaching Hospital, (EKSUTH), Ado Ekiti, on
Wednesday asked families of unclaimed
corpses in the hospital’s morgue to come over
and remove them immediately.

Acting Chief Medical Director of the tertiary
health institution, Dr Olusoji Solomon, said in a
statement in Ado Ekiti that too many
abandoned corpses in the hospital were
constituting congestion in its morgue.
Solomon threatened that corpses not claimed
by May 30 would be given mass burial.

According to him, management of the hospital
had waited for more than enough to give time
for affected families to remove corpses of
their loved ones so that they could be
accorded befitting burial, but to no avail.

He said that many of the corpses had
remained unclaimed in the morgue for too
long without anyone coming forward to claim
them.

The acting chief medical director said having
exhausted all patients, the hospital had no
other option than to take such action,
considering the inconveniences on space,
among other health implications caused by
the unclaimed corpses.

He said the hospital would continue to live up
to its status as a leading tertiary health
institution and referral centre.
