You might have heard of children doing all sorts of things before or after their parents’ death to fulfill their last wish. But what a Nigerian man recently did to fulfill a promise to his father has left many people across the world surprised. As per media reports, after his father’s death, a wealthy son buried him in a brand new BMW car instead of a coffin. Apparently, it was his father’s wish to own a luxury car.
As per reports doing rounds in the media, Azubuike, a resident of a remote village in Mbosi, Nigeria had promised to buy his father a flash car when the latter was alive. But upon failing to do so while his father was alive, the son splurged £66,000 cash (close to Rs 60 lakh) to buy a brand new BMW soon after his death.
It is reported that the BMW is furnished with satellite navigation so that the man’s dead father can find his stairway to heaven. Also, Azubuike’s neighbours dug the 6 feet deep grave for his father as a gesture of help. Check out the picture from the funeral below:

If this is really true, then someone needs to explain how he did not have the money to buy the car BEFORE the father died, then could suddenly afford #35m AFTER he dies…??!😏🤨🤔

This is painfully sad. You bury your father in a brand new BMW? Honour your father & mother while they are still alive, then bury them in decent coffins. Use left over money to assist the poor. Nigerian Govt needs to stop this bad practice which shames even the last rite on earthAdvertisement— humphrey mogashoa (@HMogashoa) June 11, 2018

Simply means the man wasn’t financially taking care of his father. Now he wants to cover up. Too late.
