The Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Taoreed Lagbaja, says that corpses in mortuaries in some barracks of the Nigerian Army are decomposing over an ongoing power outage

The Army chief disclosed this when he visited the Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu to seek intervention in the N42 billion debt owed to Abuja Electricity Distribution Company

He appealed for the liquidation of the electricity debt of the Nigerian Army following the disconnection of various Army barracks and cantonments by power distribution companies. Lagbaja in a statement issued in Abuja by the media aide to the power minister said the main reason for his visit was to discuss the consequences of the power outage in Army formations and the way forward

“Debt owed is loaded on the meter, so no matter the amount of credit we put, the meters pick it automatically. Corpses in the Army mortuaries are decomposing and the owners of the corpses are protesting,” he said.
