Talk about going out in style. A Nigerian man has decided to honor his dead father by burying him in a brand new BMW instead of a traditional coffin. Not surprisingly, the extravagant move did not go over well with netizens.
Azubuike of Ihiala in Nigeria reportedly splashed out on his late father’s funeral but decided against a traditional coffin. The son, after a lifelong promise to buy him a nice ride, allegedly purchased a brand new luxury car worth $,66,000, had the corpse placed inside and buried the BMW. Although the pricey stunt may have been a tribute to Azubuike’s father, people around the world were not impressed.
The silver BMW reportedly costs 32 million Naira, a staggering amount that netizens argue should have been used to feed thousands of Nigerians.
The burial image of suit-clad men lowering the car into a huge grave in front of mourners in the remote village of Ihaiala, Nigeria was posted by Zevi Gins on Facebook and immediately earned the ire of Nigerians. People commented on how Azubuike should have used the money for the car to help the townsfolk in Mbosi.
A certain Obienice Mohale commented.
‘This is the sort of thing that keeps us poor as black people’.
Others lamented that the grave might be desecrated by robbers who want to use the BMW for scraps. In addition to that, a few netizens have questioned whether the pricey funeral actually happened.
One Facebook comment pointed out that it was impossible to lower the BMW into the ground by hand.
“How was the car lowered into the grave because i can’t see any crane or fork lift around?” he asked.
The BMW X6 is a luxury crossover utility vehicle that is favored by several celebrities.
There is certainly a lack of information in the news. After all, there have been no other pictures from the alleged funeral and news outlets cannot find Azubuike to confirm the details. It is unclear if the image has been photo-shopped as well.
There are speculations that the picture was actually taken from the set of a film that is being shot in Nigeria. Nevertheless, people are still outraged by the extravagance of burying a BMW for a movie or as a tribute to a dead father.
Pit Bull Keeps Toddler Company For Two Days As Little Girl Wanders Into The Woods Alone
Fortunately, both returned home unharmed.
While some people are advised against owning pit bulls, reasoning that the breed is unpredictable and aggressive, one family hails their pit bull pet for saving a family member. For them, they would have not reunited with the two-year-old Charlee Campbell if not because of their dog, Penny.
The Campbell toddler went missing from her grandmother's home in Lebanon Junction, Kentucky recently, and was believed to have wandered into the woods. While Charlee is now out of the woods, literally and figuratively speaking, her family believes that she would have not been found if not because of Penny.
It is believed that Penny kept the 2-year-old Charlee company during her 2-day disappearance.
Cockroach Bread That ‘Tastes Like Peanuts’ Could End World Hunger, Prevent Global Warming
Scientists say that cockroaches are “really good and tasty!”
How far would people go to save the world from hunger and climate change? A group of Brazilian researchers has an interesting solution that could solve world hunger and global warming. The scientists have made a special bread that is reportedly cost-efficient and delicious at the same time. But are people truly ready to eat cockroach bread?
The researchers at the Federal University of Rio Grande (FURG) have proposed adding cockroaches into bread for a high protein snack. However, these critters are not the usual cockroach you might find running around in your home. According to Lauren Mengon, the Nauphoeta cinerea or "lobster roaches" are bred in captivity and are only fed fruits and vegetables.
The scientists used speckled cockroaches for their special bread.
Car Owner Hit By Meteorite Asks Payment From Church After Insurance Calls it Act of God
He told the priest to ask his Master what he can do about the car damage.
Putting a number on the chances of getting hit by a meteorite or any of the so-called 'act of God' is as difficult as it is rare, studies say. However, Percy England of Barwell, England would probably disagree. It was, in fact, an alleged 'act of God' that hit him and his dream, and on Christmas Eve too!
Imagine finding your brand new car with a hole in the bonnet? You probably feel hatred deep down your bones for whoever did it to you. It was perhaps this feeling that filled Percy, after he finds his beloved and brand new Vauxhall Viva damaged by a meteorite on the Christmas Eve of 1965.
Days before Christmas, Percy had bought a Vauxhall Viva HA 1057cc, a small family car, for himself and his family, only to find it damaged on Christmas Eve.
