Okero said he got scared and called one of his neighbors to come and witness what he had seen in his homestead.

"The coffin was sealed so I. Did not open it but called one of my neighbors to come and help me on this".

He said this was the first time such a thing was happening.

"I don't have any issue with anyone but I suspect this might be from my close relative with whom we are having land disputes."

According to the neighbor when he was called, he went to the homestead saw the coffin and they went and reported the matter at Riat police post before the coffin was opened later.

"It's very sad. The chicken was black in colour.  I have never seen such a thing. In my 50 years now" he said.
