Catholic bishop complains about the high cost of funerals in parts of Igbolend
Monsignor Paulinus Ezeocaphor, Catholic Bishop of the Diocese of Avka, condemned the high cost of burials in parts of Igbolend.
Bishop Ezeocaphor, who told journalist and personal trainer Timothy Ofoegbu, said that Umunna and Umuada make many unnecessary requests to the families of the victims.
In a statement released by Ofoegbu on Thursday, February 11, the bishop said he was not happy with the matter.
“THE CATHOLIC BISHOP IS NOT HAPPY.
His Grace, Paulinus Chukvuemeka Ezeocaphor, Catholic Bishop of Avki, is unhappy with a particular problem in Igboland. He expressed this in a very emotional voice …
“The cost of burial in some parts of Igboland is very high and people spend so many resources on burial. Umunna, Umuadas and Iyom-ndi make many useless pleas to the dead.
Therefore, when someone dies in the family now, family members not only mourn the death of their loved one, but also mourn the huge amount of money they will spend on burying the dead. I am very unhappy with this annoying phenomenon. “
