It was pure drama during a burial ceremony in Nnewi, Anambra State last Friday when a am tried to bury a carved wood instead of his brother’s dead body.
According to reports, the deceased identified as Sunday Nwosu, suddenly died on the 10th of January, 2016, and his younger brother, Ikechukwu, had been telling people that Sunday’s corpse was in the mortuary and he didn’t have money to bury him, yet.
But, on Friday, 23rd of November, 2018, Ikechuchkwu invited few friends to a funeral service without the approval of his kinsmen. He brought a coffin containing the supposed corpse of Sunday and instructed that it shouldn’t be opened.
However, their younger sister stormed the venue without notifying anyone and forcefully opened the casket. And to the surprise of everyone, only a carved wood was found inside.
But despite her cries, Ikechukwu still went ahead to bury the wood. Now, some villagers have called on the Igwe of Orizu, Nnewi, and the police to arrest Ikechukwu and make him provide his brother’s corpse.
Below is a video of the woman screaming out the abnormality:
