A brave Nigerian lad named Wene who set off on an epic 5-day marathon race from Lagos to Port Harcourt in hopes of smashing the Guinness World Record appears to have run into some rough waters.
According to a report he shared on his Facebook page, and corroborated by a caption from “Wene Port Harcourt,” he’s currently laid up in the hospital, undergoing some necessary medical attention.
He wrote: “Unimaginable pain. I give everything time, distance? Time. Scars? Time. Disbelief? Still, time. Until then, Wene is home!”
