According to his son, Abraham Adeyosoke, who shared the message on Facebook, he died on January 5th. Due to Muslim rite, he was supposed to be buried the very next day. However, Abraham delayed the burial until January 7th. While on their way to the village to commence the burial rites, he reportedly came back to life.
Abraham's message which was shared by a friend, reads: "My Dad @90. Died & rose after 36hrs. Now a Christian! Jesus is Lord!He actually died on Saturday midnight of January 5th as a Moslem. I told them to let him be till Monday evening for Moslem burial because of my Sunday Worship service. We all left for home on Monday with full burial ceremony arrangements in convoy with my family and close friends..Grave dug, amala, ogunfe and ewedu with "gbegiri flowing.."
Less than 15 minutes drive to our hometown, he sneezed and jacked back to life after 36 hours. He was looking confused when he saw all his families. I instructed that he should be placed at the back of my car. He sat in-between my wife and I. Brought to Lagos and straight to Oluyombo hospital where he was for a week, then brought home with my family. He is hail, healthy, strong and sound now, enjoying my wife's Amala felefele! - Abraham Adeyosoke"
