Sisters leave their dead mother to decompose in the house because God told them to.
A 78-year-old woman’s decomposing body has been discovered in an apartment in Benin, Edo state capital.
Her surviving daughters refused to send her corpse to the mortuary 9 days after her death because they claimed God instructed them not to tell anyone.
The foul smell from their apartment pushed neighbours into forcing themselves into their apartment, leading to the discovery of the corpse.
The police were invited and the sisters whisked away for interrogation on the circumstances surrounding the death of their mom.
Later, it was gathered that the owner of the house has arranged an ambulance which conveyed the corpse out of the apartment.
