Residents of Oremeji in Aradagun near Badagry, Lagos, were on Sunday thrown into shock when a man presumed dead suddenly resurrected after three days in the mortuary. The man, simply identified as Mr Agosu, reportedly died of an undisclosed illness on Friday in a hospital and his remains were deposited at the morgue of the Badagry General Hospital. The news of his resurrection, however, broke out on Sunday evening as members of his Mountain of Fire and Miracle (MFM) Church were preparing tents for his wake. A worker at the morgue suddenly heard that a man coughing from inside the morgue and contacted the hospital management who ordered a doctor to carry out a test on the man. On examination, it was discovered that the man was still breathing and thereafter directed that he should be admitted for treatment. Dr Tunji Olabuntu, deputy medical director, Badagry General Hospital, confirmed the incident. It is true that the man resurrected after three days in the mortuary, but he was not originally admitted in our hospital, the medical doctor said. He said that the body of the man was brought to the hospital morgue from outside and that he was not a patient of Badagry General Hospital.
