Five hundred corpses washed away by floods in Niger
People of Mariga town of Bariga local government area in Niger are searching for more than 500 buried corpses suspected to have been washed away by floods.
This was disclosed by the chief imam of Mariga Central Mosque, Alhassan Na’ibi, on Tuesday.
“We are now searching for over 500 corpses buried in a cemetery in Mariga town who we believe were washed away by flood in Mariga,” the chief imam stated.
Mr Nai’bi also mentioned that the community was confused as it had to relocate about 100 other corpses from the cemetery to another burial ground to prevent floods from washing them away.
The chief imam, who attributed the problem to activities of illegal miners near the graveyards, lamented that they had never experienced such a situation in over 60 years of the cemetery.
He appealed to the Niger government to urgently come to their aid.
