According to LIB, Jacob slumped in his parents’ home on Sunday evening, May 1, and was taken to a private hospital in Abak, where the doctor declared him dead that same evening.

However, while the family was holding a funeral for the man on Monday, May 2, mourners were shocked when the coffin “opened on its own” and the deceased was breathing weakly.

A video captured at the funeral shows mourners expressing shock when they noticed that Jacob was still alive despite being declared dead by a doctor.

It was gathered that Jacob was once again then taken to the Teaching Hospital in Uyo where the doctor checked him and said he only died “2 hours ago”.

A friend of the deceased blamed his death on the lack of professionalism of the doctor at the private hospital who declared him dead.

He said Jacob was obviously in a coma and might have survived if he was placed on life support, rather than in a coffin where his situation was obviously made worse.

“We need justice for Usenobong… This matter can’t slide,” the friend of the deceased told LIB.
