He said “we are now searching for over 500 corpses buried in a cemetry in Mariga town who we believe were washed away by flood in Mariga.

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.
