Obong died on December 17, 2016, and had written in his will that his wife deposit the money in his coffin during his burial.

The deceased had also ordered in the will that his brother and sister should be present to ensure his wife follows his testament to the letter and secure the money in his coffin.

Obong was buried in a metallic coffin estimated to have cost nearly KSh 5 million.

"He planned to convey the money to God as an offertory so that the Almighty Father could forgive his sins and save him from hellfire," Daily Monitor reported.

Sadly for Obong, he did not get the chance to send the money to God, as his clansmen exhumed the body and removed the money terming it as a taboo to bury someone with money.
