Residents of Warri, Delta State on Tuesday were thrown into utmost shock as a ‘dead’ teenage girl allegedly resurrected as she was about to be laid to rest at the Warri Cemetery.

Sources privy to the shocking incident told New Telegraph the pregnant girl allegedly took concoction and went into deep sleep which apparently made people suspect she might have given up the ghost.
A source said, “Most of the people gathered there were youths, including her parents.
“We all saw her completely naked and presumed that she had died at about 5a.m. on Tuesday, so her people wrapped her in mat and we all headed for the cemetery.
“When we got to the cemetery, the workers there dug the grave for her burial.
“As the remains were laid into the grave and they were about covering it with sand, the deceased sneezed and jumped out of the grave and started shouting.
“We all ran out of fear but the girl was immediately rushed to Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry, Effurun, near Warri for spiritual cleansing.”
Meanwhile, the police have allegedly declined comments on the incident, insisting it was a spiritual issue, and that the matter had nothing to do with the police.
Newsmen contacted the police spokesperson in the state, Celestina Kalu but her number was not available for comment as at the time of filing this report.
