Testimony of Ikenna on What Happened at the Collapsed Building At Banana Island
Ikenna proclaimed that when the building was falling off, what came to his mind telling God that is not to die that way.
In his words to the church, he said:
I said God, we never had any discussion that I would go this way. My life is in your hands Oh Lord.
I was on the 7th floor when It happened. I just said God, you didn’t tell me I will die this way or this was how I will end my life.
He recalled that after the incidence, he only found himself on the floor unscratched and had to simply get up.
He concluded saying:
One of my colleagues was with me. We were struggling to get out of the building. But we could not jump, we could not run out. I was only shouting Jesus. I found myself on the ground. But nothing hit me. I was covered in dust.
I thank God for his mercies. I usually anoint myself every day before going out to work, and this very day, I did likewise.
