What Happens To The Corpse Of Inmates Who Died In Prison? by KiNg0G: 9:43pm On May 19
We had a prominent man in my town who died recently in prison, and just this evening, a friend brought the issue up amongst us, and I asked when his burial was.. surprisingly another person replied...na wa for you o...person when government don bury since.

I was shocked and I am still shocked. This makes me wonder

What happens to inmates who die in prison? Are they released to their families or are they still considered government property? Someone told me they are buried by the government, and I don't believe it, as I think they are released to their families after their demise for them to make arrangements and proper burial.
Since not all are serving life imprisonments.

They are buried in the prison with handcuffs. The prison warders only inform the family of the deceased for them to be aware

They are government properties…
They will only inform the deceased family.
Most of the bodies are donated for practicals….saw a lot of them at park lane Enugu during my school days.

People saying they are donated as cadavers or buried by the government. What happens to the corpse of people like Ken Saro-Wiwa?

This question I think is situational and depends on the calibre of personality involved.

In my opinion, I think bodies of dead prison inmates are released to the families if they are reachable except otherwise.

They are buried by the government till their sentences end. Their families can come to claim their remains when they finish serving the years.
