A photo alllegedly showing a Nigerian man being buried in a luxury SUV has caused a stir on social media and was picked up by news outlets around the world. But is legit?

In the image, reported on by Nigerian aggregator Naij.com, it appears that the $90,000 BMW X6 is being lowered into a grave during a funeral service.

The caption for the Facebook post where the photo came from says that the car was purchased for the unidentified man by his son, Azubuike, and that the burial is taking place in the town of Ihiala.

However, while the comments section of the post is full of people criticizing the act as wasteful and a bad look for the country, a few shed light on what may actually be going on.

Nurse charged in death linked to cosmetic procedure

  Nurse charged in death linked to cosmetic procedure VAUGHAN, Ont. - Police say they have charged a registered nurse in Vaughan, Ont., after a 23-year-old woman died as a result of an illegal cosmetic procedure. York regional police say they were called after the woman was taken to hospital in life-threatening condition on April 18, 2017 following non-surgical cosmetic treatment in a private residence. Const. Laura Nicolle says the woman died hours later from what a post-mortem exam concluded were "medical complications" connected to the cosmetic procedure.

Reports indicate that the rich man , Azubuike, did that to show his last respect to his father and therefore buried the BMW X6 SUV which is approximately GHC418,000 in the ground. Ever since the photo went viral on social media

The photo of a man being buried in a 000 BMW has held the internet spellbound after it went viral . The photo shows a burial ceremony purported to be in Anambra State Nigeria showing the deceased being lowered into a grave in the BMW .

One says “Nigerian and fake news,,,, this is a film that's being directed by Tchidi chikere,” a famous local director.

Another identifies two actors in the image. One of them, Richeal Ogbonnaya, even responded that she’s "tired of explaining" it to the bloggers who have been writing about it.

Given that the the photo was originally posted to the Facebook account of Nigerian filmmaker and artist Zevi Gins, any graverobbers reading this can probably put down their shovels now.

(We've reached out to several of the parties involved and will update this story with any responses.)
