The National Hospital in the Federal Capital Territory, on Monday, reacted to a report making round claiming that the corpse of late gospel singer, Osinachi Nwachukwu sings her popular song ‘Ekwueme’ while in the mortuary.
The spokesman for the hospital, Dr Taiwo Haastrup while reacting to the claims said there is no proof that the late singer’s corpse sings in the morgue.
Haastrup while addressing journalists said someone’s corpse can not be singing while in the morgue.
Osinachi was a chorister at the Dunamis International Gospel Centre before she died as a result of alleged domestic violence she suffered from her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.
The remain of the gospel singer was thereafter deposited in the National Hospital mortuary.
There had been reports that the mortuary attendants claimed that Osinachi’s corpse was singing ‘Ekwueme’, in the middle of the night.
Haastrup while reacting to the claim 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.”
Speaking 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.”
