In an interview, some of them narrated their ordeal:
“Despite our efforts to make them (ladies) happy by providing them with their needs, they will never continue the love journey with us. It is so pathetic that majority of ladies afraid of us because of our work as coffin manufacturers” they explained.They narrate that “some of our colleagues who are married hid their work from their partners till they got married. Even some of them called for divorce when they noticed the work their husbands are doing”.“They (ladies) know that so far as we manufacture coffins does not mean we are dangerous and want people to die. The trees we use to manufacture coffins are the trees carpenters use to manufacture beds, shoe stands, wardrobe and others”
