Funerals (Ìnsìkú)

The biggest life event in Nigeria is a funeral. Funerals come with either celebration or mourning. If all burial customs aren’t followed, family members fear that their loved one won’t be an ancestor and they will haunt the living instead. 
Funerals are the focal point for family members to gather. They strengthen the community in remembrance of loved ones. Immediate and extended family and the community are expected to pay these high costs. Many families choose to take out a loan. In small villages, funeral costs can lead families further into poverty.
