How Native Doctor Tried To Exhume Dead Woman’s Corpse & Died Inside Grave
Facts have emerged on how a native doctor, who was contracted to exhume and chain the corpse of a dead woman who suffered injustice in the hands of her in-laws, collapsed and died inside the grave in the process.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the native doctor, identified as Idike Ezikanyi, from Uwani-Amaogbo, Amabokwu village in Aku town, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State, was allegedly recruited by the late woman’s husband, Nnadi, and other members of his family.
Ezikanyi was to secretly dig up the body of Nnadi’s wife, Stella, who died five years ago and was buried in her husband’s compound.
On that fateful night, the Nnadi family got more than they bargained for when the native doctor suddenly shouted from the grave, begging the ‘ghost of the dead woman’ to have mercy on him.
Before those around could react, Ezikanyi, who tried to jump out of the grave, fell back in and died instantly.
The woman’s husband was said to have succumbed to pressure from his family members to secretly exhume the body of his late wife and throw it away so that her spirit would be blinded from disturbing those living in the house which she built.
According to sources, the man’s family members had hated his late wife with passion and even disinherited their son.
The late wife had a bad leg; a deformity due to an infection in infancy. They did not want their son to get married to her, even though the man depended on the lady, who was very industrious despite her deformity.
Despite their pressure and blackmail, the two got married and completed a three-bedroom house of their own.It was further alleged that the jealousy and discrimination against her escalated and that the lady died after a spiritual attack.
It was gathered that even as she died mysteriously, the husband’s family refused to pay the outstanding bride price and also failed to accord her full burial rites.
The family members later packed into the house. And so feeling guilty and afraid of spiritual attack from the dead woman, they contracted the native doctor to exhume her body and throw it into an evil forest.It was during this bizarre exercise that the native doctor died.
Following the death of the man contracted to do the spiritual job, one of the husband’s sisters visited the native doctor’s house to condole with the family. It was reported that after she had finished crying, she suffered a stroke and had to be carried back to her home.
Since the incident happened, the man’s family had been gripped by fear over what might befall the other members of the family because of the manner they treated the late Stella when she was alive.
