Late Osun chief’s family made his corpse stand to snap with him


The family of the late Emiile of Imesi Ile, Chief Michael Olabamiji Fakeye dressed his corpse in his chieftaincy attire and made him to stand upright, before many family members were asked to pose with him for pictures.

The step was taken because his children realized that they had no personal pictures with him while alive.

The move has received a lot of mixed reactions on social media as some people didnt find it funny

See reactions:

***They will be taking pictures until, he will put his hand on ones shoulder with a peace ✌️ sign… then they will know he is serious

***Somebody cannot die and Rest In Peace in this country again

*** honestly, me I will not take ooh, if I was from that family. I fear dead people like they are coming for me. No matter how close we were.

  1. I just can’t do that. But that goes to show the nonchalant attitude of the children toward their father

  2. Is this part of their tradition? If yes no problem if no they should allow the dead to rest in peace. God bless Nigeria

  3. Really! Wonders will never end in this our world, why is it that while the man was alive the children does not snap pictures with him not until he is death?

  4. So when he was alive, they couldnt take pictures with him. And now that he is dead, they want to by force. God will save this country

  5. This is disgusting please.. Can’t fathom it at allllllll…. Snapping with a standing dead body. God forbid..

  6. This is really hilarious…. That fact that you haven’t take pictures with your Dad doesn’t prompt you to do it with this corpse…. Is really hilarious…

  7. Wonders shall never cease! Dose it mean they have no pictures with the late man that they had to go this extreme just to take a selfie with his dead body?

  8. This is unfortunate. What a shame. All his life not even a single picture with his family. Or this might be some sort of ritual.

  9. LOL. This is laughable, wonders shall never end. They can’t let him rest in peace. We’ll continue to see funny things in this Naija.

  10. Ridiculously interesting! How could a dead corpse stand? In death, and after death, the soul returns to God. Only satanic power s could do that

  11. Woaw….. Its strange
    I will assume they didn’t take pictures with the dead man as much as they wanted to while he was alive.

  12. It’s okay for them to take pictures if it seem good to them, but didint see a need for that. Am not sure I would have done this

  13. Some one once told me in the olden days corpse were made to stand. Laying them to rest became a not to long thrend.

  14. The chief is there father. They can’t be afraid of him. Let dem do whatever they like.Rest in peace Chief Adekeye

  15. Really, what is the sessence of snapping with is corpse will it bring him back to life? This is extreme

  16. This is so weird,how could they had made it possible for him to stand for the pictures?? Hmmmn, Nigerians will never cease to amaze me. May his soul rest in peace…

  17. why is it that while the man was alive the children does not snap pictures with him not until he is death?

  18. Why do we take little things serious in this part of the world. Must we bring our fetish mindset into everything

  19. I don’t even see this in my life unbelievable wetin this mean you stand with die person and snap with him

  20. This is very interesting and it is a kind of show, I hail the man, it is a historic event, and in the other hand l sympathise with the dead, may his soul rest in peace.

  21. Nigerians will never cease to amaze me. Does it mean they have no pictures with the late man that they had to go this extreme.

  22. That is good. I would have loved to pose wt my late dad. But I wasn’t even opportuned to see his remains.

  23. Its true, people don’t value someone until they loose him/her, they never bothered to take pictures with him wen he was alive.

  24. This is madness, when the man was alive they did not realize they did have personal picture with the man till he died

  25. This is nonsense if u ask me what stopped them from snapping with him wen he was still alive them for kuku lie do own inside the coffin with am snap na

  26. What will one not see in this country? What stopped them from snapping with him while he was alive?

  27. Well this is not so good at all. Why would they even do this ridiculous stuff. So looking at the pictures from now what we will see is a dead person beside the living. Not cool

  28. This is ridiculous. What are they going to use the photos for? You better let the man rest in peace

  29. Like what his he trying to do, they are just suffering the corpse by standing him up right for a photograph.

  30. This act is strange, but we can’t blame them for wanting to have a pic with their dad. But this so strange that they don’t have pictures with their dad.

  31. part of their tradition? If yes no problem if no they should allow the dead to rest in peace. God bless Nigeria

  32. Some people choose to lavish more on funeral s even when they didn’t show any sign of care when the deceased was alive.

  33. Very bad the death man won’t enjoy the funny behind the picture he doesn’t even knw anything please is good to snap picture when alive not when death

  34. To me am still thinking why what is their mind of doing that hey this world is turning to Something
