There was a commotion in Anambra state as a man placed a carved wood in a casket and tried to pass it off as his late brother’s corpse.
The burial was ongoing and the casket was opened only for a relative to investigate and find that the lifeless being in the casket was actually a piece of wood carved in the shape of a man.
In a video shared online, the woman, who is the kid sister of the deceased, can be heard screaming in Igbo, saying:
The drama reportedly unfolded in Nnewi, Anambra state. The deceased identified as Sunday Nwosu, of Otolo Nnewi, was the eldest brother of Mr Ikechukwu Nwosu, better known as Ikechukwunyelu of Obiuno Otolo Nnewi, in Nnewi North local government area of Anambra State.
Sunday Nwosu is reported to have died since January 10, 2016, nearly three years ago, but his younger brother kept telling family members that his corpse was in the mortuary and he didn’t have money to bury him yet.
Eventually, Ikechukwu organized a burial for his brother and chose the 23rd of November 2018 as the funeral date. He invited friends over for the burial but didn’t follow due process neither did he inform his kinsmen of the burial.
On the day of the burial, he brought back the casket with the “body” in it and insisted that it shouldn’t be opened. But their younger sister forcefully opened the casket to find that it was a piece of wood and she raised alarm and insisted that her brother must produce their elder brother’s corpse.
According to reports, her cries yielded no result as the burial went ahead with the wood buried in the place of the deceased.
