Moyosore Salihu Ajao, a professor of Anatomy at the University of Ilorin, has lamented the shortfall of cadavers for the study of anatomy and practical classes in medical schools. Ajao noted this while delivering the 214th Inaugural Lecture of the university, adding that the challenge is more difficult because dead bodies are not sold in the market in any part of the world. The Unilorin Professor added that his investigations revealed that there are various causes of scarcity in Nigerian Medical Institutions, which reflects a low student-to-cadaver ratio during medical school studies.
