The body of late Madam Grace Orjiokoro has disappeared from a morgue in Ebonyi State making it impossible for her scheduled burial to hold.
After she died in the hospital at the age of 80 last July, her body was deposited in the General Hospital Mortuary in Owutu Edda, Afikpo South Local Government Area.
When the family went to the mortuary to take the body for burial on December 28, they found it missing.

While the family members went to the mortuary for the body to lie in state and be buried, a brother of the deceased, Fred Okoro said they noticed a strange corpse lying there instead of the body they were expecting.
“The corpse presented to us was not ours because my sister is tall, about 6ft tall and we discovered that the person was short”.
“Not only that, my sister had plaited hair that fell down on her shoulder at the time of death but this one had low cut hair,” he said.
