According to Lucas, women he had met have turned down his romantic moves. This was why he resorted to sleeping with dead bodies.
Lucas, who works as a mortuary attendant at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Ghana, made the revelation on ADOM TV.
Shockingly, he stated that the strange behaviour “was part of the training he received when he was hired at the hospital in Ghana”, Daily Post reports.
He said, “I do it many many times. That is the training you have to do that, because once you have done that you will not be afraid of them again”.
“If you want to bath the dead body, you will carry her legs up to wash her private part, that’s why we are taught to learn to sleep with the corpses. When I am inside the mortuary, I see some fresh girls and I satisfy myself.”
“Being with dead bodies is normal for me because I am with them day and night. I feel like they are living whenever I am at work.”
“Besides, I wanted to marry but the girl says I am a mortuary man. I can satisfy myself at the mortuary because girls don’t want to date me outside or live with me for fear that I may kill them. Living women rejected me because of my job, that is why I am still single.”
“Since I was born, I have never slept with a living being. Working in a mortuary is a gift God gave me, it’s my talent. It’s very rare, not everybody can do it.”
“I am okay, I have no mental issues”, he concluded.
The Cameroonian man stated that he was sacked from the hospital following his disclosure of this on live TV.
He however wants the management of the hospital to pay him his outstanding wages, so that he can return to his country.
