Did You Know There Is A Country Where They Carry Their Corpse On The Bike? See The Country And Why?
There are so many strange things going on all over the world, many of such strange things happened due to many reasons, some are relating to the custom and culture of each place, but some things happened due to the status of people.
In Nigeria, when people die there are many ways in which corpses can be taken to the mortuary is either a vehicle is brought to the scene where a corpse is to be evacuated or an ambulance is hired.
In a country like DR Congo, things are different over there they believed that once their loved one is dead they don’t need to waste time in carrying the corpse to the mortuary, they would arrange a motorbike that will carry it to the mortuary.
I believed this practice would be strange in the sight of most Nigerians because in Nigeria we believe in our love ones even till death, we don’t joke with the corpse of our loved ones that is why we would go to any length in arranging a befitting burial for them, especially the Yorubas and the Igbos they are the tribes that have unique burial arrangements in Nigeria.
In DR Congo, once their loved one dies, they would wrap him or her with clothes and wrap the corpse finally in a tarpaulin, while a strong rope will be used to tie the corpse on top of a motorcycle that will transport it to the mortuary.
The main reason for this is that most of the people who do this in Congo are usually poor, but this custom of the land permit them to transport corpse that way since poverty as override them.
In conclusion, every community are blessed with their style and culture, thus one does not have the right to condemn anyone, because we Nigerians may think the culture is barbaric but we should always realise that what we believed to be the best way of life here may be forbidden elsewhere.
