Abena, who appears to be in her late teens or early twenties, said that when she moved to join her boyfriend at first, she could not control herself as she dreaded a moment one of the corpses would emerge from the tomb.
"But my boyfriend told me that when I die, I will also be put among them so I should not be afraid because they are gone and cannot move or come out anymore", she recalls.
Now, the young lady is able to cope from day to day even as she looks forward to a day when they will be presented with an opportunity to leave the dead and join the living.
