Just hours after his death, indications emerged that former Governor of old Bendel (now Edo and Delta states), Chief Samuel Ogbemudia, had the premonition of his death.
Ogbemudia is said to have prepared his final resting place before his demise.
The former military and civilian governor reportedly died at 84 in the night of Thursday, March 9 at a Lagos hospital, but the news broke on Friday, March 10, 2017.
Samuel Ogbemudia Junior, the eldest child of the deceased, revealed to journalists at the Iheya family house that the late leader died on Thursday night at a Lagos Hospital.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ogbemudia’s son confirmed that his father had prepared his grave years ago, besides that of his late mother within the family compound.
“Anybody can do that,” he said when asked if there was a particular reason the late Ogbemudia prepared his grave.
“I will miss everything about him. I, and all those who had contact with him, have all learnt a great deal from him; he was a father, not just to his children, but to all. He was a great man,”he said.
