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.
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’s also not clear if that is formed as 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.
In the video, a man, believed to be the head of the Bechem Government Hospital Mortuary, fondling corpses of Ebony Reigns and her friend, Franky Kuri, has led to a public outrage as many are calling for heads to roll.
The attendant was seen holding the head of Kuri while staring at her concurrently.
“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 Reigns breasts and private part, until the one taking footage asked him to take off his hands just so he could film his preferred part.
Ebony Reigns father and her management have threatened to take legal actions against Bechem Government Hospital Mortuary.
