Before his sad demise, Kumawood actor Bishop Bernard Nyarko once told how he had no option than to sleep with dead bodies.
He said he had to share the same room with dead people every night until there was a way for him to move out.
Narrating how it all happened in an interview, Bishop said things became very hard for him at a point in time that he could not afford accommodation.
Before then, he was living with his mother in her house, but something happened which got him packing out of the house.
In that story published earlier by YEN.com.gh, Bishop said he once offered help to someone he viewed as a brother and friend.
However, this person paid him back with evil by turning his own biological mother against him Bishop, causing him to be sacked from home.
Consequently, he became a street dweller, as many calls and pleas on his friends to help him proved futile.
Bishop revealed that he eventually met another friend who was into corpse dressing for a livelihood.
This friend, he disclosed, introduced him to the job which he accepted with glee because apart from getting some money, he had somewhere to sleep – by the side of the corpses – before day broke.
He said he slept with the dead bodies for a long time until there was a breakthrough for him to get his own accommodation.
Clearly, the late actor did not have life easy at all as an earlier report also shed light on how he endured harsh treatment from the wife.
In the video published by YEN.com.gh, Bishop confessed to nearly taking his own life as he could not stand his wife’s behaviour.
Meanwhile, the actor’s pastor, Prophet Rabbi, has disclosed that he was killed by someone in the movie industry.
He explained how the killer was able to achieve this.
