A viral video showing the bodies of the late Afropop singer, Ebony Reigns, and her friend Franca Kuri in a mortuary, has left the public horrified.
A mortuary attendant can be seen touching and examining the badly injured bodies of the two showing bruises and for Ebony a deep cut in the head.
The location of the mortuary is unknown as well as the identity of the attendant.
It appeared there were more than two persons involved in the insensitive act as another assistant was seen using a mobile device to film the incident.
“Unbelievable! Life is too short,” he said and left hold of the head. “I have taken footage of it.
If I see it on social media, I will hold you responsible because I won’t share it,” another person is heard as saying.
Moments after that, the same man was captured fondling Ebony’s breasts and private part, until the one taking footage asked him to take off his hands just so he could film his preferred part.
As to why they would do what they’re doing is already disturbing, but that they even took videos of the episode makes things 100 times worse.
The male attendant had earlier performed similar touch on the body of Franklina Nkansah Kuri, who together with a military officer, died alongside the musician in a tragic crash on the Sunyani-Kumasi road on February 8, 2018.
It is yet to be established if the incident happened at the Mankranso Government Hospital where the deceased bodies were initially taken after the accident.
It is also not clear if that formed part of the duties of the attendant and the fact that the act was filmed and circulated, has got social media activists publicly registering disapproval.
A very angry Ama Nyamesah Drewry, posted on Facebook demanding the immediate arrest and possible prosecution of the persons behind the unfeeling act.
Apologies, but the video cannot be posted here.
