Former Defender Taribo West Slams Death Rumor – I am Alive

Recently rumours went round that Former Nigeria Defender Taribo West had died at a South African hospital. But the footballer turned preacher says he well and alive. According to him in an interview, the news of his death came to him while he was meditating on a sermon. He also said he received calls from all over the world, stating that he had never received calls that much before in his life.

 “I received calls telling me to check Facebook about news of my death. I saw reports of my death and people were commenting. I just laughed. I’ve never received such number of calls all my life. From US, UK, all over the world.”

The Atlanta ’96 Olympics gold medallist added that he had a premonition that something ‘evil’ was going to happen, after a spiritual attack, and said that he is relieved and happy now because God used the news to reunite him with old friends and acquaintances. He said:

“It’s the handwork of the devil; they struck but they couldn’t get me. Last week, I had a revelation, in which I was heavily attacked but they couldn’t get me. They also tried it in the physical but they didn’t succeed. So, when they couldn’t kill me, they resorted to the rumour of my death. It wasn’t an ordinary thing. But when they can’t get you, they must join you in celebrating with you. That’s what’s happening now.”

“All the people I had lost contact with were calling, thinking I had kicked the bucket. But it helped me in reuniting with these people. That’s God’s work, when the devil means evil for you, God turns it to good for His children. I didn’t travel. I only went to the American Embassy last Tuesday; I never travelled after that,” Taribo said.
