According to the government, such practice poses a major challenge for government to relocate such corpses in the course of future road expansion and reconstruction projects in such areas.

Meantime, Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State has disclosed that over 200 roads had been constructed across the state within the last one year.

The state Commissioner for Works and Infrastructure, Dr. Obafemi Hamzat gave the warning on burial to residents at Mushin Local Government Area of the state, shortly before Governor Babatunde Fashola, finally, handed over 16 completed networks of roads in the council totaling 10.127 kilometres.

Fashola in his remarks, appealed to residents to shun the culture of trading on roads and walk ways and other forms of activities that constitute nuisance on the roads.
