Big goat, cartons of beer – Man receives ‘mandatory funeral list’ from late landlord’s family

A Nigerian man simply known as Tolu has shared the outrageous letter he received from the family members of his landlord, who recently passed away.

In the letter contained a list of items the expected him to contribute for in respect of the deceased’s burial ceremony.

What was demanded of Tolu included the sum of N150,000, a goat, a bottle of Schnapps, 5 packs of beer, Palm wine, and other ludicrous items.

They family also told him that they know he won’t be able to attend the funeral taking place in the south-eastern region which is why they made the demands.

Sharing a screenshot, Tolu wrote; “Got this yesterday. I don’t understand Nigerians again o. I’ve not even live up to a year there. They’re Igbo, I’m Yoruba. I only met the man twice. Zero relationship with the family. I’ve been laughing intermittently since yesterday night.”
