The morgue owner spoke of the harm involved in sleeping with a corpse whom he claims possess deadly spirits.
He vehemently refuted the allegation in an interview with Vanguard News saying, “The claim is false. I do not sell parts of dead people."
Chima also commented about the danger associated with having sexual intercourse with dead people or using water remnants after they have been bathe.
According to him, such substances are poisonous and can lead to sickness.
“There are people who do so or do have sex with them, but I don’t do any of such.”
“You will die also in a matter of hours or days. How can you have sex with a corpse or how can someone sell body parts of a corpse or water used in washing a corpse? Such water is poisonous.
“Sex with the dead is a deadly affair. Do not think that because she is lying down there, she is finished and you can go and have sex with her?
“People die from different ailments such as HIV/AIDS, and water used in washing their bodies is poisonous and any person who uses it will either die or contact sickness.
“The corpses may be dead, but they still possess some spiritual powers to protect themselves.
“We have about 100 corpses right now and 18 abandoned ones, but we keep the place open, both day and night, without any security and anybody, who attempts to do anything funny by going there to steal or do anything has himself to blame.”
A lot of issues are encountered when dealing with some dead bodies whom Chika described as special due to spiritual forces connected with them.
“Dead bodies, especially those of occultists and members of secret societies do give us trouble while being embalmed because their bodies have been ‘fortified’ by the devil or some spiritual forces.
“In such cases, we have to pet and persuade them by talking to them to allow the chemicals to penetrate their bodies, but if they remain stubborn, we have to employ our own spiritual force and of course, power pass power and we can then embalm them.
“Some dead bodies are so powerful such that they do not allow others to lie close to them, so in the night, we will remove other bodies near them and dump them far from where they are or they would go to an isolated place and lie there.
“All dead bodies are not the same, which is why we knock before we enter there", he said.
Recently, a Cameroonian man, Sharkan Lucas, confessed on live television that he sleeps with dead bodies.
This type of stories have been reported occasionally in some media agencies all over the world.
