LASG Bans Use Of Residential Premises As Burial Sites, Embalmment Centres by AmazingELixir: 10:25am On Dec 10, 2020
The Lagos State Government says the use of residential premises as morgues, embalmment centres or burial sites is not allowed in the state.

This was contained in a statement titled, ‘Burial prohibited on residential premises – LASG’ on Wednesday.

The statement quoted the Executive Secretary of Lagos State Law Reform Commission, Mrs Ade Adeyemo, as saying that the prohibition was to prevent the transmission of communicable diseases in the State.

While noting that “it is an offense to use residential premises as morgues, embalmment centres or burial sites”, Adeyemo stressed that the Commission is tasked with the onerous responsibility of updating and reviewing laws that address immediate and peculiar needs of Lagosians at every point in time.

She said, “The Law Reform Commission is saddled with the responsibility of reviewing and reforming laws with a view to effecting necessary changes to make them more modern, fair, just, efficient, accessible and bring them in consonance with the prevailing social and moral values of society.

“In this regard, the Commission, after review, found it expedient to ensure that the Lagos State Public Health Law was expanded to include present-day disease outbreaks like the Ebola, Lassa fever and other communicable diseases.”

She noted that the very first compendium of laws in the State was the 1973 laws of Lagos State which was a merger of the laws that existed in the former Federal Territory of Lagos and those of Former Western Nigeria, adding that the present Law Reform Commission evolved out of the short term State Law Review Committees/Commissions saddled with the responsibilities of previous law reforms.

The Executive Secretary explained that some of the Laws and Bills that have been reviewed and forwarded to the House of Assembly for the benefit of the general public include the Animals Bill, Electric Power Sector Reform Law, Tenancy Bill, Real Estate Regulatory Bill, Lotteries and Gaming Authority Law and Law Enforcement Training Institute Bill, among others.

Lagos State trying to cash out from the dead.

May God forgive them.

So people will be forced to pay money to get a space to bury their dead rather than bury in their environment.

Dead people don suffer. Someone can not die in peace again.

This is a very good development
How can people's compounds be filled with graves in this 21st century... Are the whites foolish to have cemeteries?

Very true, Ogun state indigenes like to bury their love ones in their compound. I think the state governor needs to build and make cemeteries very attractive and affordable to encourage people to bury their love ones there. Also security in cemeteries is important as well because of evil ones

Good!!! This is long overdue, since Africans have refused to outgrow such nonsense.... If there are no burial spaces in designated cemeteries, people should cremate corpses.
