“I have yet to receive a call or message from anyone regarding the incident. Nobody called me; I decided to go alone.

“I was the one who paid for the remains to be transported. I was billed N120,000 which I had to pay because that was the cheapest price I got as the majority of people don’t like transporting bodies.”
