The doctor declared him dead that same evening and the family held a funeral for the man on Monday, May 2.

However, as mourners surrounded the coffin with the deceased inside, the coffin “opened on its own” and mourners noticed the deceased breathing weakly.

Usen-Obong was then taken to the Teaching Hospital in Uyo where the doctor checked him and said he only died “2 hours ago”.

A friend of the deceased who reached out to LIB blamed his death on the lack of professionalism of the doctor at the private hospital who declared him dead.

He said Usen-Obong was obviously in a coma and might have survived if he was placed on life support, rather than in a coffin where his situation was obviously made worse.
