Police run after Pastor Chris and his members after flouting COVID-19 protocols

The Ghana Police Service has threatened  to pursue any organisation especially churches that flout the COVID-19 safety protocols in worshipping God.

This comes after a video, allegedly showing members of the Christ Embassy Youth Church flouting COVID-19 protocols at an event in Accra, went viral on social media.

The video showed a mostly unmasked crowd, screaming, chanting, and dancing to the “evangelism” of their similarly unmasked leaders.

Investigations have already been launched into the alleged gathering by the youth at the Trade Fair Center’s Fantasy Dome in Accra, on Friday, April 30, 2021.

Speaking in an interview with the media, the Director of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, DSP Sheila Abayie-Buckman, said management and leaders of the church are currently being interrogated over the development.

DSP Sheila Abayie-Buckman also cautioned the public to also adhere religiously to the COVID-19 protocols.

“The videos we have seen show that they didn’t even wear masks, which is a mandatory requirement for everyone, whether in church or not. Let me take advantage of this to stand on the authority of IGP to warn Ghanaians that we are not going to countenance any breach of the COVID-19 protocols in these times and so anybody who intends to breach the protocols will be dealt with.”

Meanwhile, the police have locked up the Fantasy Dome where the event was held.

“Police have since Sunday morning locked up the Fantasy Dome and have started questioning leaders of the Church and Management of the Fantasy Dome about the event.”

The police in the statement announced that “any person found culpable will be arrested and duly prosecuted.”
