While at the mortuary, patients confirmed their healing encounter at the hospital, as many received their healing from him and described him.
Because of this the hospital authority were refusing to hand the body over after they found out it was him that patients were describing.
Eventually, the family and the church took the case to court to get the body released for burial. They gave him a full escort and ambulance but for about 2 hours, all the motors and cars were not functioning. They had to carry the body in one of his Benz buses to Anyinam.
On the funeral grounds, Nana Opoku Oware delayed coming to the funeral and the family wanted to put him in the casket. Upon several tries th do so, the body could not be moved until His friend Nana Opoku Oware came to pay his last respect.
They placed in a casket on a bench with the body in it. As soon as the casket was lifted, there was a heavy lightning which divided the group into two. People still dig the soil(nfuntuma) for many forms of healing.
The pictures of him, ex president Rawlings, Nana Opoku Oware among other prominent personalities at his time are still in Anyinam.
