Ex-Super Eagles central defender turned pastor, Taribo West, has debunked rumour of his death.

The 43-year-old was reported to have died in London of wounds he sustained from gunshot he fired at himself.


But the ex-International has denied the report saying he is alive and not bothered by the news of his death.

He said, “I get excited because it means that I will live longer than anyone else. Let me tell you that I’m alive. I will live up to 120 years if God says so…those wishing me dead cannot be serious. I have no terminal illness. I’m not in London. I’m in Lagos and I hope to be in Ibadan today to participate in the annual Coca-Cola soccer tournament for kids.

“My fans, who are in Ibadan, will see me live on Thursday and Friday. In fact, my weekend is fully occupied.”

Recall that the 43-year-old former footballer was rumoured dead sometime in September 2016.
