The twitter user who is from Nigeria revealed that the incident involves a church in his hometown which insisted that the money which was pledged by the dead man be redeemed by his family before they can bury him.
According to his tweet, the deceased had reportedly made the pledge when the church wanted to purchase a land, but he unfortunately fell ill and died before he could provide the money.
The Twitter user identified as Felix Nweke was replying to a tweet by another tweep who claimed that the Catholic Church is insisting that his elder brother who is not a Catholic, pay his dues before they can bury their late mother who was up to date with her contributions to the church.
”A man lived all his life serving and providing for the Catholic church in my town. He pledged 1M to the church because they want to purchase a land, along the line he fall ill unfortunately he died and Church insist on the pledge to be redeemed before they can bury him.”
