Burial vault Burial vault

Photos of an empty burial vault found in Ikoyi cemetery, Lagos with Sanwo-Olu's name written on it as the owner has stirred reactions on social media.

A Twitter user with the user name Peace Ighodaro took to the micro blogging platform to share photos of her discovery.

This caused a buzz on Twitter as Sanwo-Olu is also the name of the Lagos state Governor.

Reacting to the photos, some social media users argue that the vault may contain large amounts of money, while others believe the vault found at the graveyard could be own by a person reserving it for himself.

Some jokingly said the Lagos state Govenor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has booked his burial vault ahead of time.

Below are some comments from social media;

blessedtech_gadgets: Rich Men do this alot and it's not a big deal having your own Burial Vault even before you die most prominent people do this as a result of hassle that comes up after they're gone to the afterlife and they don't want any form of disputes by their family members as to where they'd be interned so most times they acquire their burial Vault down before they die,so that when they die they'd be buried in their burial Vault.
