A Calabar Great Grandma who was reportedly born in 1890 and died at an incredible age of 130, has captured widespread attention. This revelation, as indicated on the burial poster, has spurred a significant amount of conversation online, both within Nigeria and globally, because of its rarity.
It is no small matter to live for longer than a century, let alone 130 years. In fact, such longevity is so exceptional that it nearly surpasses the current documented record for the longest-lived person. According to the Guinness World Records, this honor belongs to Jeanne Calment of France, who lived for 122 years and 164 days.
