In the said video, which has since gone viral, the mortuary is seen spreading his hands across the corpses of Ebony and her friend, Franky Kuri, as another stands by to video the action.

Some Ghanaians have since called for the mortuary man to be arrested, saying he has failed to respect the dead.

However, giving his own version, the mortuary man, who spoke through a friend, said he did nothing wrong and was just going about his normal duties.

The said friend told Nhyira FM that the mortuary man was actually asked by the CID investigating the incident to video the bodies of the victims so it can be used as evidence.

“Thus, when he was asked by the pathologists working on the bodies to go and check if the bodies were ready to undergo autopsy, he took videos of them so it could be used as evidence…,”  he said.
