The mass burial announced by authorities of the University of Benin Teaching Hospital for victims of last Friday’s multiple accident, along Benin-Ore road, in Igbogui, Ovia South West Local Government Area of Edo State, will hold on Saturday.
Authorities of the hospital had arranged to bury the corpses of the victims on Wednesday, but could not, apparently due to failure to secure enough space for about 60 corpses from the accident, that were deposited at the mortuary.
A source at the hospital said the victims will be buried at the Third Cemetery, located along Akugbe Street, off New Lagos Road, Benin.
The source further disclosed that the burial will be preceded by a brief prayer session in the premises of UBTH by 8.00am.
