The authorities at the National Hospital Abuja have distanced themselves from the report that the remains of late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu were heard singing in the morgue at night.
Osinachi died some months back allegedly due to prolonged domestic violence at the hands of her husband. She attended Dunamis International Gospel Centre Abuja.
Her corpse have since been deposited at the National Hospital, where the mortician claimed to have been hearing her corpse sing her hit song, “Ekwueme” in the middle of the night.
Reacting to the news, the Spokesperson for the hospital, Dr. Taiwo Haastrup quashed such claims. Adding that it is not medically possible for a corpse to sing.
Reacting to the report, Haastrup said: “Medically, there is nothing like that; it’s just an imagination of people. Somebody that is dead and is a corpse, how would such a person be singing in the night?
“There is no medical backup to that; it’s an imagination that may be due to the church she attended while alive, and the songs may just be giving people ideas, but there is no proof in any way. It just can’t be proven in any way.”
“Somebody that is dead is dead and has become a corpse; it’s inside a morgue, it can’t sing and can’t move so it’s an imagination of people.”
On the autopsy report, Hasstrup said: “It’s a coroner case, and it’s confidential; we can’t reveal anything there. The IPO in charge will give it to the IGP, who will turn it to the court.
“The result has been submitted all the same, and our people did it confidentially.”
