The billionaire buried his father on Friday, November 18, 2016 in a casket worth N15 million.
His father was buried on Friday, November 18, 2016 at the All Saint Anglican Church, Irefi Oraifite, Anambra State.
This extravagance was met with widespread condemnation online, as many questioned the act, terming it to be wasteful.
Giving a reaction in a Facebook comment, a user named Gabriel Omonhinmin wrote, “Don’t you think Emeka Offor’s father, Benneth would have been much happier in his grave if this money was given as a revolving loan to some youths in that community?”
Another user with the name, Manu Vice Mike wrote, "No matter d amount of tin u did to a died man is nothing but a waste cus he doesn’t know that a gasket worthy of millions went to grave with him , so he should bury his dad on a humanitarian ground nd not for publication.. so those of u who r planning to give ur dad an extravagant bury should covert it to him with an extravagant life Style wen he’s still alive rather than expensive gasket as it is not going to make any difference with those buried wit normal gasket."

While Offor might have felt that he was honoring his late father by burying him in an expensive casket, many Nigerians who are currently affected by the economic recession will have an issue fathoming why such investment was made on a dead person.
