Rebellious Bishop and church members arrested in for flouting social gathering rule
The General Overseer of the Miracle Life Temple at Sokode-Lokoe has reportedly been arrested by police in Ho alongside five members of his church for disobeying President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s directive against social gatherings.
The Ho Municipal Police Commander Anthony Danso confirmed the arrest to the Ghana News Agency, adding that the culprits were yet to be interrogated.
Reports say most churches in the Volta regional capital have suspended church services, with many reaching their members through social media and radio stations, all in a bid to avoid contracting and spreading the deadly coronavirus.
According to the GNA, a few churches decorated their premises with palm fronds on Sunday to commemorate Palm Sunday but did not organise church services in the auditoriums.
On Sunday, March 15, 2020, president Akufo-Addo banned all public gatherings including conferences, funerals, political rallies, church activities and other related events to stop the spread of COVID-19 in the country.
