The True Vine Covenant Church at Anyamam and the Apostolic Church of Ghana at Nakomkorpe all in the Ada West District, have been cited for breaching the COVID-19 restrictions and organised outdoor Easter Conventions involving large numbers in contravention of the law.

The Ada West District Chief Executive, Mr. Adzoteye Lawer ordered the two churches to stop all outdoor Easter Activities or risk being arrested; “This is a warning but if you fail to comply, leadership of the Churches involve will be arrested and arranged before the court”.

Mr Akrofi gave the orders when the District COVID-19 Enforcement Team encountered the two churches having the outdoor Easter Conventions. He ordered them to go back indoors to hold the service within the recommended limits for church occupancy.

The COVID-19 monitoring team included the district police commander, military personnel, district assembly taskforce and NADMO have embarked on a joint community patrol as directed by government to ensure strict enforcement of the COVID-19 restrictions and safety protocols during the Easter festivities.

The head pastor of The Apostolic Church of Ghana at Nakomkorpe, Rev. Lord Appiah Frempong, apologised to the DCE and the Sege District Police Commander, DSP George Aboagye for infringing on the law which he claimed was due to misinformation.

We  recieved a letter from our national headquarters that we can hold our conventions at anywhere but we should observe the safety protocols,” he told the DCE.

The police commander warned the church leaders that they together with the military will continue to undertake day and night patrols throughout the Easter festivities and if they (churches) flouted the Covid-19 restrictions again, they would be severely dealt with according to the law.
