People of Mariga town of Mariga Local Government Area, Niger state 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, Alhaji Alhassan Na’ibi while speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) via telephone on Tuesday.

Nai’bi said the community was in total confusion as it had to relocate about 100 other corpses from the cemetery to another burial ground to curb the happening.

The Chief Imam who attributed the problem to activities of illegal miners near the grave yards, lamented that they never experienced such situation in over 60 years of the cemetery.

He, however, appealed to the Niger State Government to, as a matter of urgency, come to their aid to curb the situation.
