[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Lagos State authorities have come out to ask members of the public to assist in identifying bodies abandoned at the morgue.
A notice which was published in newspapers on Wednesday, appealed to families whose loved ones went missing between October 19 and 27 to visit the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) in Ikeja for identification exercise.
The announcement was made by the Lagos Chief corona Justice Mojisola Dada in the dailies. Screenshots of the public notice have set social media alight overnight, raising suspicion that the bodies might include those allegedly killed in the October 20 military attack on protesters in Lekki.
People’s Gazette reported on the night of the military shooting that a Major was leading an attempt to hand over nine bodies to the Police in Lagos, which the police rejected and advised the military officers to take the bodies to the mortuary by themselves.
Ms Dada did not mention how many bodies were still at the mortuary in her announcement. The Gazette noted that a spokesman for her office did not immediately return a request seeking comments, Thursday morning.
