Chief orders corpse of buried man be exhumed for failing to attend communal labor when he was alive

Kofi Emmanuel’s ‘rest in peace’ has been shortlived, after chief of Assin Dansame township in Ghana, Nana Twum Barima V, ordered that his corpse be exhumed from the cemetery on Monday 26th June , a day after his burial, on the grounds that the deceased flouted community’s rule by abstaining from communal labour when he was alive.

It was gathered that the Chief’ argument was that since the deceased refused to obey the laws of the land, then he does not deserve to be buried on the same soil but elsewhere hence the exhumation. Ighanaian reports that with that, the corpse of Kofi has been dumped dumped at the town’s lorry station after it was initially left along a footpath in the town.

However, there’s panic in the town over a possible disease outbreak as a result of that unhealthy discharge/fluid from the corpse that leaks to the ground.
