There's a Nigerian that's 125 year old? See his photos

Some guy named Lugard Ekhator is on Facebook claiming that his grand father, Pa Ekhator Onabor, is a super-centenarian - born around 1890, which would make him about 125 years old.

According to the grandson, Pa Ekhator Onabor is the current Odionwere of former Ugbugo village, now Evbuohen N’Oba, near Ugo Niyekeorhionmwon, in Orhionmwon LGA of Edo State.

"He married a wife who had six children for him (2 men and 4 women), but died in the 80s. One of the female child (the first born) is late now some years ago and was of old age, as Pa Ekhator now has 5 surviving children.

More of what the grandson wrote on Facebook below...
Although he never went to any former school, but worked with white men in the timber industry where they were used as tree (igedu) cutters with axe, and then prepare the logs for transportation through the sea via Sapale for industrial usage by the white men.
Although he was born and bred as a traditionalist, (I used to follow him to make sacrifices in the bush for the gods in my younger days) but today he is a professing Christian, who underwent water baptism some five years ago or thereabouts, after confessing JESUS as his LORD and personal saviour. Hallelujah!
