Video circulating on social media captures fans taking photos of DJ Arafat’s body after they removed the casket from the tomb for confirmation.
The fans desecrated DJ Arafat’s grave just a few hours after he was laid to rest at Williamsville cemetery in Abidjan’s working-class Adjame district.
According to reports, the incident occurred just after Ivorians paid their last tribute to the late entertainer in an overnight grand funeral concert which began on Friday, August 30.
Some fans were injured after the police fired tear gas to disperse the grave profaners who forced open the fresh grave and coffin, taking photos and videos they shared on social media.
Some reports also indicated that the fans also tore DJ Arafat’s cloth to check the tattoos for confirmation of his death.
