Injustice in Nigeria has become a norm.

A photo journalist identified as Benedict Uwalaka working for leadership newspaper was brutally attacked on Thursday by Security guards working at the LASUTH mortuary where the corpses of Dana Air Crash victims were kept.

As the body were being released the photo journalist was brutally attacked by one of the security guards working at the mortuary and seized his camera.

As he was struggling to get his camera back, another security guard smashed his head with a bottle.

As at the time of this report, nothing has been done to these culprits.

Imagine the poor guy doing his job.

    RE: the battering of leadership news papers photo journalist..
    Questions needing answers:
    1, Why would the lasg privatise caring for the dead at the morgues?does it mean the government isn’t up to the task to run its own facilities ?
    2,The high handedness of tos funerals headed by mrs ogunshola can be said to be an understatement..less than 10years ago she was an employee with lotad funerals as a mortician and today she is said to be a multi billionaire with several properties scattered across lagos
    The government should also explain why despite the allowances made in the coroner law RE:muslims,why does mrs ogunsola still insist on post mortem(that’s 1 of her huge sources of wealth)..this is still done at lasuth and gbagada general hospital
    The govt should also explain why tos funerals is being runned from lagos state mortuary..was the consultant asked to run funeral services or mortuary services? and most often insist its funeral services must be used for burials?is that part of the agreement with LASG?..
    Finally,Mrs ogunshola has bragged in private nothing would be done to her or her son RE: the journalists dehumanisation..she has assured of her contacts with the state govt..very recently mrs ogunsola built a crematorium which she fraudulently with the help of her contacts in the lagosassembly wanted to insist on a law for compulsory cremation of lagosians..her crematorium has since been acquired by the Lasg as the governments own..
    Bayo ogunsola the accused is said to be a very rich kid who rides his power bikes with escort bikes and a blue latest mercedes ML500 jeep behind with thugs as bodyguards..this careless power drunk lifestyle indicates more harm would be done by this family if they are not curbed…also, this is the 2nd time a journalist been attacked at the morgue, with the 1st journalist been paid 5million naira to keep his mouth shut..
    Tos funerals also built 2 different. Well equiped mortuaries in lagos well over 3years ago, the cash flow at lasuth has kept their hands to busy to begin operations at their private morgues..1 of these is located at down Olowopopo rd,just before the underbridge that leads to shangisha…
    these and more questions are begging for answers…
