Is Mama Efisho The Oldest Woman In Nigeria?

Mama Efisho
The picture above is that of woman named Mama Efisho, who is allegedly191 years old.   Mr. Avuefeyen - Mama Efisho's great great grandson of the woman, says his great grand mother is about two centuries old and ‘lives in Ellu (Edhemoko, Akaluba Street, Ellu in INLG) in Delta State.’

When questioned on the veracity of this claim, Mr. Avufeyen claimed that that she witnessed the birth of his grandfather.  If his claims are true then, Mama Efisho is most likely Nigeria’s oldest woman alive that we know of.  See another picture of the woman below:
