When the late Fela Anikulapo-Kuti sang: ďDouble Wahala for dead bodi,Ē he may not have had anybody in mind. However, this was exactly what happened to the corpse of a dead police sergeant in Calabar.

Daily Sun gathered that Sergeant Johnson Obohoís corpse was deposited at the mortuary of the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital, Calabar, but when members of his family came for it for burial, the corpse was nowhere to be found.

The incident has pitted the family against the police, with the latter insisting that they want the corpse of their deceased member.

It was also gathered that the corpse of the late sergeant was mistakenly handed over to another bereaved family and was buried in Ikono Local Government Area on May 5, 2006.

The mistake was said to have occurred when the hospital authority mistakenly dumped another corpse in the same cabinet in which the Sergeantís body was kept.
The Sergeantís family was said to have been shocked when, after taking delivery of their assumed relationís body, discovered that it was a different corpse.

The mortuary attendant, according to a source, made a desperate search for Sergeant Obohoís body, but discovered later that it was mistakenly handed over to another family from Ukpom Ikono, in Ikono Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State.
The corpse was later exhumed and taken for burial at the Sergeantís home town.
