The incident, dubbed a “mystery,” took place on Wednesday when a man’s corpse known as Baba Boboye was exhumed in a two-story building at Alafia Tayo Roundabout, opposite Mega Primary School, Akure.
It was gathered that the corpse was exhumed for relocation by his family due to the ongoing road reconstruction within the State Specialist Hospital axis.
According to sources, everyone became curious when the coffin appeared very neat as if it was recently buried before they were prompted to open it when it was discovered that the 41-year-old corpse was still very fresh and intact.
It was also found that all the items with which he was buried were not altered, including his shoes. Later, the corpse was moved to Ajegunle, opposite Ijoka where it was reburied.
