There was serious commotion at the Tema Community 9 Cemetery on Saturday, February 11, 2017 when a mortuary attendant with Tema General Hospital stormed the burial ground to seize a dead body over an amount of GH¢40 (N3K) balance for the services he rendered.
According to some eyewitnesses, while the body was being interred, the enraged mortuary attendant in the company of a colleague, seized the coffin, opened it, picked out the dressed corpse and started heading back to the mortuary.
The mortuary attendant disclosed that the family of the deceased failed to pay the full amount and while he was busy preparing the other bodies for burial, they sneaked the corpse out of the mortuary and headed straight to the cemetery for burial rites.
However, the funeral later continued following the intervention of some elders and friends of the deceased.
