A man identified as Abraham Ayogu, was buried with a bird-like casket, on Saturday, 4th May, 2019, in Alor Uno, Nsukka, Local Government Area of Enugu State.
This was made known by a Facebook user identified as Ogbu Christopher, who posted photos from the funeral ceremony with the caption;
”The remains of THE YOUNG were laid to rest this evening in his town Umuegbede Village Alor Uno Nsukka”
According to Promise Eze, another Facebook user who commented on Ogbu Christopher’s post, the casket seems expensive being that the late Abraham Ayogu wasn’t an extravagant nor a flamboyant type.
”I shed tears for young, the father of my child hood friend aka thunder, I use to know him, a very gentle and plain man, RIP sir.more over as for the gasket ,I hope it didn’t cost a fortune, since it’s going below the top soil and to be melted away, if the late young is to be alive and to see this type of gasket, the man i knew will not sleep there in for a day, he was never the flamboyant and extravagant type, hmmm so long eyong as you were called by the people”

Meanwhile out of curiosity, we researched and found out that, there are lots of Crazy casket designs in the African nation.
Some people have been buried in caskets shaped like a pineapple, a camera and even a beer bottle, to represent their jobs in life.
Some also choose to have theirs shaped like animals, including a lion and even a beetle, to symbolise their clan totems.
