The rich young man, named as Azubuike, saw his father off in the remote village of Ihiala, Nigeria, using a £66,000 BMW car brought from the showroom to bury his father in.

The enormous car was lowered to into a large hole with six people carrying it. 

The picture unexpectedly went viral online and many criticised it's a waste of money and said it could have been put to better use. 

According to a local report, the son bought the car after he lost his father since he wanted to honour his father by the luxury car for his final journey, so he placed him inside. 

But one of the comments said, "Buy the car for your parent while he is still alive if you are moneyed and bury them with a decent coffin but this is just being foolish and showing off."
