Flashback: The day two Mortuary men went to the Cemetery to pick a dead body back to the Mortuary.

On Saturday February 11, 2016, a famous mortuary man who works for Tema General Hospital stormed Tema Community 9 Cemetery to seize a dead body over an unpaid debt of GH40 owed by the deceased family. According to sources, the deceased's family declined to pay the full sum to the mortuary man after he provided services to them by dressing their corpse, but managed to smuggle the body around his back while he was busy with other corpses.

While the body was being interred, the mortuary man, accompanied by a colleague, seized the coffin, opened it, removed the dressed corpse, and began walking back to the mortuary. His actions surprised some family elders, prompting some bereaved family friends to intervene and save the situation. The now-famous mortuary man at Tema General Hospital, who stormed Community 9 Cemetery on Saturday February 11, 2016 to seize a dead body over an unpaid debt of GH40 owed by the deceased family, has been fired by hospital management.
