    A prophecy by a former Super Eagles defender, Taribo West , that United States President , Donald Trump, would defeat Joe Biden by a slim margin , has sparked a debate on social media with many mocking the ex -defender.

    The video of the prophecy was posted on social media before the American election but only went viral after the poll had ended .

    West, who is also a pastor , said he rightly predicted the victory of Edo State Governor , Godwin Obaseki; and his Ondo State counterpart, Rotimi Akeredolu , but his prophecy did not go viral on social media.

    He subsequently prophesied that Trump would defeat Biden by a slim margin and asked his supporters to ensure that his prophecy goes viral .

    The ex - football star said , “ Before the election in Edo , I said Obaseki would win. Is that true? Did he win? Nobody said it anywhere . Nobody quoted me anywhere . I also said in the Ondo election that Akeredolu would win. Is that true? Did he win? He won .

    “ Now , I want you to put this out the way I want it. Donald Trump will win the election by a slight split edge over Joe Biden . So , quote me and I want it to be out before time . ”

    However, Biden went on to win the election which is now being challenged in court by Trump.

    West’ s prophecy , however , became a huge subject of debate on social media on Tuesday with many describing him by certain names.

    @ M 4micheal tweeted , “ He predicted and made it look like God was speaking through him. If Trump had won, his prediction would ’ ve been right and he would ’ve told his congregation that God did it, but God isn’t an author of confusion .”
