Cleric worries over neglect of cemeteries


Kaduna – A Kaduna-based cleric, Pastor Yohanna Buru of Christ Evangelical Church, on Sunday expressed worry over poor sanitation of cemeteries in Kaduna state.
He said that most cemeteries in the state appeared to be in states of disuse, adding that the situation in the burial grounds was made worse by inability of government officials and public-spirited persons to visit the place.
Buru, who spoke in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna, said that cemeteries, which would serve as the final resting place for every individual needed to be properly sanitised and maintained.
He urged Christians to pay regular visits to the cemeteries to offer prayers for the dead in spite of the poor sanitary situation of the graveyards.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”70560″]
“Our graveyards are not looking attractive due to neglect by many of us.
“Some people have even turned some of these places to refuse dumps, and this is so insensitive,” he said.
He condemned the situation where criminals and those involved in rituals had invaded the cemeteries for their nefarious.
Buru stressed the need for adequate security at the cemeteries to ward off criminals and other evil-minded individuals who use the place.
“We need to start securing and sanitising our final home,” he added. (NAN)
