Worshippers trooped into the convention ground of Holy Ghost Fire Apostolic Church, Ogunse Estate, Sagamu Road, Ikorodu, Lagos, 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 it all started when an artisan who first noticed the stained wall ,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, who craved anonymity, said the scene has been attracting over 400 worshippers daily, but added that yesterday’s crowd was much compared with previous days.
When Vanguard visited the scene, there was a stained soaked wall, which looked like an image with some of the worshippers dropping sachets and bottles of water by the wall, while others knelt down or touched the image praying aloud. Also, the construction work at the Church compound has been put on hold due to the number of pilgrims turning up to catch a glimpse of the image.
