The National Hospital in Abuja has responded to reports that the body of late gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu sings her hit song ‘Ekwueme’ in the morgue at night.
In a statement made by company spokeswoman, Dr Taiwo Haastrup, the hospital disputed the charges as bogus, claiming that it was all in people’s heads.
“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.”
Hasstrup commented on the results of the deceased singer’s post-mortem examination, saying,
“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.”
