There was a serious drama at the Tema Community 9 Cemetery in the city of Ghana on Saturday, February 11, 2016, when a man who works in a mortuary with the General Hospital Tema stormed the burial ground to seize a corpse over an amount of GH¢40 balance (nearly N3,000 naira).
ccording to trending reports online, it was gathered that the relations were supposed to pay GH¢40 for services rendered.
According to eyewitnesses, the mortuary attendants in the company of a colleague, while the corpse was being interred, seized the coffin, opened it, picked out the well-dressed corpse, and started heading back to the mortuary.
The conduct of the mortuary men surprised mourners who had gathered at the graveside to pay their last respect to the deceased.
Meanwhile, the family elders in the company of some good friends contributed to saving the shameful situation which paved the way for the deceased to be buried.
