Kofi Ofosu, a social media user and a leading communicator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), shared the photo of the building on Facebook on Sunday.

Ofosu claimed that the building was the tomb of the late mother of Dr Stephen Opuni, a former CEO of the Ghana COCOBOD.

He claimed that the building was situated at Babianiha in the Brong Ahafo Region.

YEN.com.gh could not immediately verify his claims.

The NPP communicator suggested that it was sad for such a building to have been used as tomb when, according to him, some people do not have places to sleep.

Isaac Owusu-Appiah, a social media user, who commented on Ofosu's photo, corroborated the NPP communicator's claim that the building was Opuni's mother's final resting place.

"Kofi, you haven't seen anything yet. I attended the funeral myself at Babianiha. He has built a whole village within that village. Looking at what he has done in that village, I can tell you Dr Opuni is super rich," he wrote.
