A mortuary man identified as Shakar Lukas, at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra has given a chilling account about how vendors and pastors visit the mortuary to use water from the remains for their rituals.
Apparently, water collected after bathing dead bodies is on high demand on the black market and being sold for millions of cedis to pastors and food vendors.
According to Lukas, most of these food vendors and pastors who visit the mortuary for water from the remains of dead people are desperate for customers to patronise their services.
Lukas also disclosed to Sammy Kay, that even some commercial sex workers are involved in the alarming act in a bid to attract more and tie up those who patronize their services.
He, however, notes that one would have to be spiritually prepared else the dead will haunt the person involved.
According to Lukas, he was introduced into the business by his uncle and for nine years, he has been working with the dead.
”People are using the hairs and water from dead bodies to do some spiritual power. Some women use the dead body water to cook food to sell,” he emphasised.
