Few hours after DJ Arafat was laid to rest at Williamsville cemetery in Abidjan’s working-class Adjame district, his grave was desecrated by fans for social media photos.
The incident occurred just after Ivoriens paid their last tribute to the late entertainer in an overnight grand funeral concert which began on Friday August 30.
AFP reported that 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. It was learnt that the over-zealous fans also tore the late entertainer’s cloth to check his tattooes for a confirmation of his death.
