BBNaija star, Queen Mercy Atang has narrated an ordeal that got her speaking in tongues to avert danger.
The Akwa-Ibom beauty queen in an Instastory on Monday gave a vivid description of her ordeal at a hotel suspected to be in Lagos, although she never mentioned the exact location.
She said she woke up to the alarm blaring but she completely ignored it because at that point she was trying to put a call through to her make up artist.
But reality dawned on her after she realised that one of the rooms was filled with smoke.
Upon opening her door, she also realized that the passage way was filled with smoke too.
As she reached out to the elevator she discovered it had stopped working.
Smelling danger, she quickly ran back to her room to alert her brother and best friend who were still fast asleep.
As anxiety struck, she wondered how they were going to make it out of the building as they were on the 25th floor.
Nonetheless, she said she remembered God and kept speaking in tongues as they discovered the stairways down to the ground floor of the building.
She explained, "Waking up to a beautiful morning, excited and getting ready for the day and then the unexpected happened
"So I heard the alarm twice but then I didn't pay attention because I was trying to reach out to my makeup artist
"Suddenly I discovered my apartment was filled smoke. I opened the door and the whole place was filled with smoke. The elevator in the hotel wasn't working anymore.
"No Light in the building, I ran back to my apartment to alert my brother and bestie panicking
"My apartment was on the 25th floor of the hotel. How we were gonna get to the GROUND FLOOR we had no idea
"My anxiety got to another level, but I decided to stay calm so I don't scare my bestie and brother.
"We took a bold decision to run down the stairs, to find the hotel stairs was another issue, luckily we found it, and we started running all the way down to the GROUND FLOOR...from the 25th floor
"Smoke everywhere we kept running, my bestie running and shouting, my brother very calm and he handled the situation so well
"Well, I, on the other hand, I kept speaking in tongues and saying to God it can never happen.
"Not on your watch. We finally got to the GF. Cutting the long story story. God saved me this morning. And I'm grateful to him."
