Nigeria: ‘I couldn’t afford a Christian burial for my wife’

Burying the dead in eastern Nigeria has always been a contentious issue. Unlike the majority Islamic north, in the predominantly Christian region in the east, families often have a difficult time burying their dead, as the process tends to be very expensive and the pressure of cultural norms means that a lot is expected from people who are grieving. Now there is a public outcry against a culture where religious and cultural institutions tax families before allowing them to bury their dead.Produced by Olivia Ndubuisi Filmed by Nnamdi Agbanelo Edited by Yadeta Berhanu
