Highway to heaven! Son ‘buries his father in a £66,000 BMW in Nigeria because he had always promised he’d buy him a flash car’
A Nigerian man has buried his father in a brand new BMW instead of a coffin in order to see him off in style in the local village graveyard.
The wealthy son, identified only as Azubuike, lost his father, to old age but according to local reports had always promised him one day he would have a flash car.
So after he passed away in the remote village of Ihiala, Nigeria, Azubuike is reported to have splashed out £66,000 cash on a car from the showroom to bury his father in.
An incredible photo taken at the funeral shows the enormous car being lowered into a huge grave dug six feet deep by hand in the village.
