A man was laid to rest in style on Saturday at his hometown in Mbabu, Konshisha local government area of Benue State.
According to online sources, the man “refused to be buried in a coffin” as he was laid to rest with a bed and wrapper in a low-key funeral attended by family members and friends.
Aoraan Festus took to Facebook to share pictures from the burial and wrote; “History was made today at Mbabu, Shangev-tiev in Konshisha local government area as late Ajingir Tsa goes home as he refused to be buried in a coffin.”
This has left internet users confused as to how a dead person can ‘reject a coffin’ in his lifeless condition.
Some believe that the deceased gave instruction not be buried in a coffin before his demise as others who claim to know the family also confirmed the news.
