The Medical Officer of the Ndop District Hospital, Tabang Julius and two Mortuary Attendants, Genesis Nicho and Ibrahim Sule, have reportedly  been dragged to the Ndop Court of First Instance over the missing body parts of a corpse.

The trio were allegedly dragged to court by the family of late Paul Cheh, a native of Babungo in Ngoketunjia Division of the North West Region.

According to information gathered the corpse of late Paul Cheh was deposited at the hospital mortuary. But, on the day of its removal, the brothers of the deceased were barred from touching or even inspecting the corpse. Instead, it was mortuary attendants who opted to do the work, despite the insistence of the deceased brothers to do it. After insisting, the mortuary attendants got their way.

When the corpse was taken to the deceased resident in Babungo, the relatives of late Pa Cheh realised that the corpse was not properly laid in the casket and needed to be adjusted. When the family head, Ndula Cheh Fritz, tried to arrange the corpse inside the casket, he discovered that the legs of the deceased have been chopped-off.

He immediately alerted the other family members about the development.

There was total chaos at the funeral ground. The family decided to proceed with the burial ritual. But before they did that, they took photographs of the legless corpse. Four days after the burial, fritz Cheh immediately sued the medical officer and the two mortuary attendants of the hospital.  The matter is presently in court pending adjudication.
