BUSINESSMAN POSTS 'PROPHETIC' XMAS FACEBOOK POST & DIES

A businessman, Egheomhanre Eyieyien, has allegedly predicted his own death by posting a ‘prophetic’ Facebook message just hours before his demise on Christmas Day.
In a commemorative message posted at 8.05am, Egheomhanre wrote: “I hear in my spirit the words; an unusual Christmas Day; an uncommon day; completion; conclusiveness; unmistakable proofs, ear-tingling testimonies… to the person who can believe God. Merry Christmas!”
Barely five hours after, Egheomhanre’s only brother, Iyere, has announced the death of his brother on the social network.
“My only brother, Pastor Egheomhanre Emmanuel Eyieyien (29th April 1967 – 25th December 2015), went to be with the Lord this morning after a brief illness.
“My heart is heavy. What can I say but thank God for a life well spent? He fought a good fight. The crown he worked for all these years is now resting majestically on his head. Jehovah be praised!” Iyere’s message says.
Both brothers’ accounts have reportedly been inundated with over 670 comments from well-wishers so far.
Iyere left the following message under his brother’s post: “You heard right my beloved brother. I have known you all my life. It is an honour and privilege to have been you younger brother. I will miss you. I am already missing you.”
Among those who offered their condolences was a popular economist, Ayo Teriba. He expressed disbelieve and shock over the strange occurrence.
Teriba said: “It is a thing of marvel to know this was Eghes’ last ever Facebook post! He had these premonitions only a few hours before he went into his rest, and even put them in writing, (and) tagged a few friends, before posting it on his wall! May his soul rest in peace!”
“The shocking news that brought tears to our eyes. We bless the hours we had with you. RIP Uncle Egheomhanre Eyieyien,” another relative, Odianosen Eyieyien, wrote.
According to an autobiography published online in 2013, Egheomhanre was a senatorial aspirant of the All Progressives Congress for Edo-Central. He was given the pet name ‘Eghes’ by his mother, which means “My time has come” in the Bini language.
