National Hospital debunks reports of Osinachi singing ‘Ekwueme’ in mortuary at night

The National Hospital, Abuja, has dismissed claims that the corpse of lead singer at the Dunamis International Gospel Center, Osinachi Nwachukwu was singing ‘Ekwueme’ while in the mortuary.

The spokesman of National Hospital, Dr Tayo Haastrup, said there was no proof that the late gospel artiste was singing, adding that somebody dead couldn’t be singing while in the morgue, Daily Post reports.

WITHIN NIGERIA recalls that 42-year-old Osinachi, died in April allegedly due to domestic violence she suffered from her husband, Peter Nwachukwu.

Reports had it that the National Hospital mortuary attendants alleged that Osinachi’s corpse was singing her hit track, Ekwueme, in the middle of the night.

According to Daily Post, while reacting to the report, Haastrup said: “Medically, there is nothing like that; it’s just an imagination of people. Somebody that is dead and is a corpse, how would such a person be singing in the night?

“There is no medical backup to that; it’s an imagination that may be due to the church she attended while alive, and the songs may just be giving people ideas, but there is no proof in any way. It just can’t be proven in any way.

“Somebody that is dead is dead and has become a corpse; it’s inside a morgue, it can’t sing and can’t move so it’s an imagination of people.”

On the autopsy report, he said: “It’s a corona case, and it’s confidential; we can’t reveal anything there. The IPO in charge will give it to the IGP, who will turn it to the court.

“The result has been submitted all the same, and our people did it confidentially.”
