Some members of a church called Church Of Promise have lost their lives with some trapped after the building collapsed.
The church was located at Akyem Batebi in the Eastern Region and according to reports, some of the members have lost their lives with some still trapped with efforts been made to rescue them.
According to an eye witness report, the members had congregated solely to embark on three-day fasting and prayers to intercede for their head pastor who has been sick for a month now.
The eyewitness also mentioned that about 51 members of the church had gathered there to pray but only 21 of the number managed to escape, with the rest been trapped and when the rescue agencies started their work only 8 people had been retrieved and they were all dead.
It’s obvious that, the pillars of the building which was uncompleted were weak and had been abandoned for years, making it weak, hence the reason for the collapse.
However, as rescue missions by National Disaster management are trying their best to pull everyone out. We would update you once we are able to get more details.
