Richard Kofi Jordan, the general secretary of the Mortuary Workers Association of Ghana, has passed commentary that some persons buy water used to bathe corpses to perform certain spiritual rituals.
The general secretary's remarks confirm rumours that have lingered over the years that some mortuary attendants sell water they use to bathe dead bodies, which is believed to have spiritual potency to buyers for rituals.
Confirming the practice, Richard Kofi Jordan revealed that he was contacted recently by someone to provide such water, but he declined the offer.
''Last month, someone I know met me and told me he wants to be installed as a Chief in his hometown, so he wants me to help him to get water that has been used to bathe a corpse, but I declined.''
Richard Kofi Jordan disclosed the man explained that in the town that he intends to be enstooled as a chief, whoever sits on that throne dies.
According to Jordan, the man told him he was advised by a 'man' of God to look for water that has been used to bathe a dead body for it to be used to perform rituals to fortify him.
Jordan also recounted the experience of another mortuary attendant in one of the mortuaries in Accra to further buttress his claims.
''A mortuary attendant in one of the mortuaries in Accra informed me some years ago that someone came to him with GHC20,000 to bribe him to cut a body part of a corpse for him. The mortuary man said he rushed to the administration to report the person, but the person had fled when he returned,'' Kofi Jordan told Okay FM in an interview monitored by Kasapafmonline.com.
