Sharkan Lucas, from Cameroon, told the Ghanaian TV station ADOM TV, that women continually spurn his advances because he works as a mortuary assistant.
So instead he has sex with the corpses of women he tends, he said.
He has been working at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, one of Ghana’s most important hospitals.
Lucas said: “I do it many many times. That is the training you have to do that, because once you have done that you will not be afraid of them again. If you want to bath the dead body, you will carry her legs up to wash her private part, that’s why we are taught to learn to sleep with the corpses. When I am inside the mortuary, I see some fresh girls and I satisfy myself. Since I was born, I have never slept with a living being. Working in a mortuary is a gift God gave me, it’s my talent. It’s very rare, not everybody can do it.
Lucas insisted he was mentally stable.
He has now been sacked.
