The Ogun Government on Thursday sealed a private morgue at Gbogbolowo community in Ifo Local Government Area of the state for operating illegally. Lasisi Odeniyi, the Permanent Secretary, Ogun Ministry of Health, who supervised the sealing of the building, said that the morgue was not properly registered as three corpses were evacuated from the facility. He said that activities of the morgue posed serious health hazards to members of the community. He also noted that the building had no approved plan and that the owner would soon be served a demolition notice by the relevant government agency. Odeniyi explained that the closure had become necessary to serve as deterrent to others who engaged in such illegal acts.
