A courageous young Nigerian named Wene embarked on an incredible 5-day marathon journey from Lagos to Port Harcourt with the goal of breaking the Guinness World Record. Unfortunately, he has encountered some difficulties along the way.
As stated in a report shared on his Facebook page, and supported by a caption from “Wene Port Harcourt,” Wene is currently in the hospital receiving the necessary medical attention.
He began his solo marathon from Lagos state to Port Harcourt in an effort to surpass the Guinness World Record.
Wene announced his attempt on breaking the record in a Facebook post on Sunday, October 15. Recognizing that it would be an extremely challenging task, he encouraged others to join him on this adventure.
He wrote: “Unimaginable pain. I give everything time, distance? Time. Scars? Time. Disbelief? Still, time. Until then, Wene is home!”
