A 28-year-old undertaker and ex-convict, Samuel Okyere, has claimed he can talk to the dead as he recounted how he went to jail after he was falsely accused.
Narrating how he was falsely accused by his former girlfriend and imprisoned for two years at the Koforidua Central Prison, he claimed that he can see beyond the physical world.
The native of Nkoranman in Koforidua in the Eastern is multi-skilled and works as a carpenter, décor expert, steel bender, and undertaker.
Okyere sat for an interview with Ibrahim Oppong Kwarteng of Crime Check Ghana and gave a narration while claiming he has the rare ability to communicate with the dead.
Okyere disclosed that he was falsely accused by his ex-fiancée Regina Mawusi who he supported to learn a trade but she dumped him for an abroad-based man.
''I was jailed two years for theft following my girlfriend’s false allegations that I stole a piece of cloth from their shop. They couldn’t tell the value of the piece of cloth I stole. I was however jailed though they couldn’t adduce enough evidence,'' he recalled.
After he was released from prison, Okyere was lucky to work for somebody, and a client he impressed decided to give him a contract.
But the client later realised he is an ex-convict so he refused to give him the job. He continues to face stigma even from those he calls family.
Speaking in the same interview, Okyere who has been working as an undertaker for the past fifteen years, claimed dead bodies used to wake up while he was preparing them for burial.
He disclosed that due to the nature of the job, he had to fortify himself spiritually.
''For one to do a job like that, the person has to prepare spiritually. I don’t go to any fetish for any form of spiritual power for protection.''
He continued: ''It is very common to see dead bodies blink their eyes when I am attending to them. I ask the dead bodies that sit up or stand to go back to sleep because I don’t have any issues with them. I tell them to rather go to their families or anyone they had problems with before their death because I have been only contracted to do my job,'' he said.

In other news, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that although an outfit is only clothing, for International Togolese footballer, Sheyi Emmanuel Adebayor, fashion is a statement regardless of its simplicity.
The former Arsenal striker has developed confidence when it comes to his sense of fashion choice and rocking old school sneakers does not take away from his self-built prestige. And he knows this!
Emmanuel Adebayor took to his Instagram page recently to give his 1.4 million followers a sense of how he could still look dapper in affordable footwear.
