Medical student fled his anatomy class crying after being disturbed by seeing his friend's corpse

Indeed, it was a mild drama at the University of Calabar in an anatomy class when a medical student fled away after seeing his missing friend's corpse he was asked to work on. It's always a painful feeling to lose a loved one, and more traumatic when the person was closed to you.


According to BBC News Africa who posted it on their verified Facebook page, Enya Egbe, the 26-year-old who still vividly recalls that Thursday afternoon seven years ago at Nigeria's University of Calabar, conversing with fellow students around three tables with a cadaver laid out on each.

According to the report, inside their anatomy class, Ebge was asked to dissect a body, he discovered it was his friend Divine of more than seven years. He screamed and fled the class. While narrating to the BBC, he said he used to go clubbing together. There were two bullet holes on the right side of his chest.

It was Oyifo Ana, one of the many students who ran out after Mr Egbe had left the class and found him weeping outside. Egbe later contacted his friend's family, who had been going from one police station to another in search for Divine. The family eventually managed to reclaim his body.

According to the BBC discoveries, more than 90% of the cadavers used in Nigerian medical schools are "criminals killed by shooting", according to 2011 research in the medical journal Clinical Anatomy.
