Address, Ojodu Lagos.
It happened at the beginning of 2008 when the church relocated to its permanent site, it was a swampy area and it is always full of mud especially during the rainy season. Bricks were placed on the mud to allow easy passage. Children were the most affected as they have to go through this passage to the children’s church. Sometimes when the block broke they (children) had to pass a trail of stick to get there.
One day, 4year old Ada was passing through the swampy area and suddenly she stepped on a weak brick and fell into the swamp. She cried loudly for help and nobody was around to rescue her from her predicament. Gradually she began to sink and started vomiting because she had inhaled and swallowed horrible things like engine oil, dirt etc. As the situation was getting out of hand and nobody to help, Wembly decided to go into the muddy path to rescue Ada without considering the danger of such action.
As he tried to move in the mud, he also sinking gradually but he was undeterred by the situation. He eventually got to Ada and pulled her out of the mud. He fainted immediately he got out of the mud; it took several minutes before he could regain his conscience. Wembly saved Ada from the hands of untimely death at the cost of his own life.
