A family of a young lady has accused a popular restaurant in Lagos of hoarding the corpse of their daughter after she slumped and died at work.

According to the family, their daughter passed away while on duty at the restaurant, but they allege that the establishment has refused to release her body to them.

They also claimed that the only information they received from the restaurant was that their daughter fainted and died while trying to dry her wet clothes.

The family has called out the restaurant, accusing them of refusing to disclose the whereabouts of their daughter’s corpse or release it to them.

“She started working at KFC barely two months ago. On Friday last week, she was said to have slumped at about 11 PM. KFC claimed she just screamed and fell while trying to hang her washed clothes. According to them, they rushed her to the hospital, but the first hospital rejected her because of a deposit. It was the second hospital they took her to that pronounced her dead on arrival.

KFC took her body to the morgue without informing her family. And as we speak, they are yet to show the family where they have placed her body. Even the police have refused to disclose the location to the family.

We suspect that they are attempting to cover up something. We don’t believe she just fell like that. KFC claimed she screamed and fell, but they didn’t inform her family who lives nearby. They took her to the hospital and still didn’t notify her relatives.

She died, and they took her body to the mortuary without informing her family. They immediately went to the Festac police station to make an entry without informing the family.

It was the police who later called the family on Saturday afternoon, instructing her mother to come to the station because her daughter had encountered issues at work. However, when the woman arrived there, they reluctantly informed her that her daughter was dead.

She wasn’t sick. In fact, she was perfectly fine and healthy. We suspect electrocution (this is our assumption) because there was a statement made by a policeman to the elder brother. He said, and I quote, ‘Oh, it’s you who electrocuted your sister in Festac.’ She was the only daughter in her family. She started working at KFC after dropping out of nursing school,” a family source said.
