A female chorister at a Catholic church in Iwofe, Port Harcourt, was confirmed to be a man by mortuary attendants after she died in a Keke accident few days ago.
The deceased identified as Emmanuel Adaolisa on Facebook was also a pharmacist believed to be a woman by her friends and church members until her death.
A Facebook user, Chukwuka Eseh who made this known in a post said members of the church were shocked when they visited the morgue and were informed that Adaolisa was a man.
His statement reads,
What our clime has turned into.. A certain Emmanuel Nwaolisa. A Pharmacist who graduated from UNIPORT. (Emmanuella Adaolisa as facebook name.) Until the unthinkable happened on the 31st January 2023. Nobody knew he was a transgender.
This person started worshiping at St. John’s Catholic Church, Iwofe Road Portharcourt within November 2022.
All along, she was putting on engagement ring, wearing all manner of female makeups, female clothing et’ al. She joined Choirs, climbing Alter at will…….
She had told people around her in the church that she’s from Ondo, she’s done her traditional marriage, that she’s now on her wedding classes at St. Johns Catholic Church. On that note, parishioners were going along well with her.
On that fateful 31st of January, after evening Programme in the church, on her way home, she met her Waterloo.
She was was seen in a tricycle (Keke) inside a gutter, bleeding all around her face.
After been there for a while with little or know rescue, the info got to the church choir members who went there to confirm the story to be true.
There and then, she was taken to a military hospital around Rumuola PH. On getting there, she was confirmed dead on arrival (DOA).
Furthermore, she was to be dressed by the mortuary attendants, it was there they discovered that she was a he……
The mortuary attendants then called on the church choir master to interview him on the gender they deposited with them, the choir master responded that it was a female.
But when he and his team was lead to really confirm their position, low and behold…. The choir team were bewildered by what they saw that they have been dealing with a man but not a women as she claimed. Many other stories about him started surfacing from people that knew him before. Please my people, let’s be vigilant at all times.
