According to his will, Yiga decreed that he should be buried with a TV Screen that shall be on 24/7 broadcasting his favourite station, ABS TV.

Last week, a section of the media announced the controversial pastor was dead following liver complications but his family later dismissed the reports as false, insisting he was still alive.
