The Tema Community 9 Cemetery witnessed a shocker on Saturday February 11, 2016 when a popular mortuary man with the Tema General Hospital rushed to the burial ground to seize a dead body over an amount of GH¢40 (less than $10) balance which the family refused to pay him for services he had rendered.
According to some eyewitnesses, the incensed Mortuary Man in the company of a colleague, while the body was being interred, seized the coffin, opened it, and carried the dressed corpse and started heading back to the mortuary.
His reason was that the family of the deceased failed to pay for the full amount and while he was busily preparing other bodies for burial, they sneaked the corpse and headed straight to the cemetery to bury and proceed to perform the funeral.
Fearing he could not retrieve his balance if that was allowed to go, according to a local journalist, the mortuary did the unthinkable.
