Panic In Jos As Dead Man Suddenly Grabbed His Younger Brother’s Hand

There was panic on Monday at the mortuary of Plateau Specialist Hospital in Jos, when the corpse of a man being prepared for burial suddenly grabbed his living brother’s hand. The shocking incident happened as the deceased, identified as Choji Zeng, was being dressed up by his brother, in preparation for burial. Family members who had participated in the washing of the corpse ran out in panic as they saw the dead Choji Zeng holding tight to his younger brother, Mr. Gyang Zeng.

The pandemonium attracted mortuary attendants, who came in to separate the two brothers. The brothers had lived together at Ungwan Juma’a abattoir in Jos metropolis. Choji Zeng, 35 years old, died after a brief illness, relations said. He was said to have suffered from a liver disease.

Gyang Zeng confirmed the unusual incident to NAN. He said that after bathing his brother, he was dressing him in white cloth when his corpse grabbed his hands. He said he had to call the mortuary attendants for help. The mortuary attendants forced the dead brother's hands off him.

Gyang also revealed to NAN that when the deceased held his hands, he asked him, “Choji, why did you hold my hand? Do you want me to join you, or what?”

One of the mortuary attendants said it was not the first time such a thing would happen.

Mr. Benjamin Oche, a neighbour of the two brothers who also witnessed the incident, told NAN that before Choji’s death, both brothers had a misunderstanding. He said both of them had quarreled over the land they inherited from their parents.

No foul play is however, being suspected in Choji Zeng’s death.
