Burial Creativity: Man Buried In Fish Casket In Akwa Ibom State (Photos)

These days, a lot of people choose the type of casket they prefer to be buried in when they die. It could be in form of a plane, boat or even a fish. Yes, Essien Ndueso, the Special Assistant to the Akwa-Ibom state Governor on Media, disclosed that an Akwa-Ibom man chose to to ‘swim to the great beyond’ in a fish shaped casket.




Residents of Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital, witnessed such a burial as a fish shaped casket was paraded in town. The caption of the post read:


“Could it be that the man loved eating fish, or he was a fisherman or came from the great ‘Iyak’ family? I witnessed this scene on Nwaniba road this morning around St Luke’s Hospital. Note, I didn’t say the man turned into a fish o, I only saw a fishlike casket. Perhaps my friend Uwemedimoh Umanah who owns a fish farm and also loves fisherman soup can explain this better why a man would choose to swim to eternal glory. Happy weekend folks.”
