Ghana: Morgue Worker Admits He Had Sex With Many Corpses As Part Of Training

Police in Ghana are hunting a mortuary worker who claimed live on TV that job training involved defiling corpses by having sex with them.

Morgue attendant Sharkur Lucas said he was asked to sleep with a dead body by bosses, in order to vanquish any reservations about being near cadavers.

The young man also appeared to admit he turned to dead bodies to sate his sexual lust because women were frightened off by his morbid line of work.

Speaking on Adom TV, Lucas said he interfered with corpses “many, many times” with approval by his bosses.

“That is the training you have to do that, because once you have done that you will not be afraid of them again.”

Explaining the activity on TV, Lucas said: “Sometimes if I want to ask a lady out, she will be afraid of me once she hears that I’m a mortuary man and turn me down. But when I’m in the mortuary sometimes, I will see a fresh female corpse and I will satisfy myself,” Sharkur Lucas said.

“The ladies sometimes say because I work in the mortuary, I will kill them if they accept my proposal. I have not done it once but many times. Currently I don’t have a wife and since I was born, I haven’t had sex with a fine girl,” Lucas told Adom TV.

“Working with dead bodies is a talent that God gave me. I’m with the dead bodies every time, every day and it is as if I’m with another person.”

He has gone on the run since making claims and police have launched an investigation.

Malawi: Davido Goes Nuts, Attacks Fan

Despite renowned for being the Warm Heart of Africa with kind hearted people, it appears Malawi did not give Davido the treat he anticipated.

“Bored,” the Nigeria’s pop sensation summed up his visit to Malawi on an update he posted on his official Instagram.

However, this did not go well with some Malawians who took to social media to hit back at the 22 year old Nigerian with some suggesting Davido was getting bored with Malawi because there were no bombs exploding in the background courtesy of Boko Haram.

To show that this was not just banter with himself however, a crazy viral video has surfaced purportedly showing the multi-award winning artists throwing a jab at a bystander during an organised walk around the City of Lilongwe.

It’s unclear who this person gettin what appears to be the right hook is, but an eye witness alleged it was aimed at a security guard who wanted to take a picture with the Aye hit maker.

“The video could either be doctored or be of someone impersonating Davido to tarnish the image of M Cinemas because it is owned by a Nigerian guy,” M Cinema Promotions Manager, Sitha Kandodo, told Malawi24 in an interview.

He however refused to explain if there were some disagreements between Davido and M Cinema who flew the Nigerian artist to attend Spirits of the Assassin film premiere.

“Davido is a human being like anyone else. It is possible he was frustrated by something but I cannot speak for him. How can I speak on his behalf? All I know is that everyone gets angry at times but that was not to do with his visit to Malawi”.

Kandodo added: “This will however not derail us. We have lined up other Nollywood superstars such as Osita Iheme and Chinedu Ikedieze of the Aki na PawPaw fame to visit Malawi shortly.”

Memes with the bored Davido face have gone viral on social media in Malawi.
