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.

Police seek man accused of contacting woman more than 200 times, sharing intimate photo without consent

  Police seek man accused of contacting woman more than 200 times, sharing intimate photo without consent Police seek man accused of contacting woman more than 200 times, sharing intimate photo without consent . He has been described as five-foot-10, 170 pounds, with short dark hair.A change to the Criminal Code of Canada in March 2015 made publishing “intimate images” of a person, no matter the age, a criminal offence. The move followed a recommendation from the federal Department of Justice. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact investigators at 416-808-1400 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

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.)

People are sharing pictures of their beards from upside down — and the pictures will give you nightmares .
In a viral thread on Twitter, people are sharing pictures of their beards from upside down. It's equal parts hilarious and horrifying. - Some people are sharing pictures of their necks with faces drawn on them from the same perspective, which are also, uh, disconcerting.Let's not beat around the bush: some people just look better with a beard. But when seen from a different angle? It's a totally different story. In a now-viral tweet, @ehdannyboy on Twitter seemed to flip the internet's perspective on facial hair.
