Campbell's first traumatic experience could not deter her from pursuing her goal.

"I had never seen a dead body a day in my life, but when I came, I wasn’t scared. I was determined to give this a shot,'' she said.
''Everything went fine. But once I got home that evening, I was alone, and I was so traumatised.''

Despite the nerve-racking experience, she mustered the courage to finish the voluntary service.

Obtaining knowledge in the field

After voluntary service, her quest to establish herself as a mortician urged her to pursue an associate degree in funeral service and mortuary science at the Montego Bay Community College (MBCC).

Nigerian lady who buys and sells coffins

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported about a Nigerian lady in the business of buying and selling coffins.

The Nigerian lady from the eastern part of Nigeria also drives ambulances in addition to selling and making caskets - a business she has been doing for 7 years now.

In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, the businesswoman said she feels okay with the job as she considers it a help rendered to the dead and their bereaved loved ones.

She added that it is a bad omen for one to die without anyone available to lay the person to rest.
