The convention ground of Holy Ghost Fire Apostolic Church, Ogunse Estate, Sagamu Road, Ikorodu, Lagos, Nigeria turned into a Mecca of sort yesterday, as people trooped there to catch a glimpse of ‘Jesus Christ.’
One of the walls of a building under construction in the Church was wet, and some people perceived an image on it as that of Jesus Christ, attracting worshippers and curious people.
Vanguard learned that the stained wall was first noticed, weekend, by an artisan, who screamed and abruptly stopped the day’s work, claiming he had seen Jesus Christ.
His alarm spread into the neighbourhood and people began to troop into the place. One of the Church attendants said the scene has been attracting over 400 worshippers daily.
Yesterday, people visited the Church individually and in groups, praying and singing to God, while some transporters seized the opportunity to hike their fares. People were seen dropping sachets and bottlesof water by the wall, while others knelt down or touched the image praying aloud.
One of the worshippers, Mrs Adetoun Folajimi, said she came with a lot of prayer requests, hoping that they will be granted soon.
Another female worshipper, Mrs Stella Amuse, said she came all the way from Parafa, in Ikorodu, saying “I saw Jesus Christ on the cross and this is a sign that my prayers will be answered.”
