According to a report by Accra-based Citi FM, the prophetess, identified as one Efua Eguawaa of the African Faith Church, saw her prayer session go completely wrong when the anointing oil’ smeared on the girl’s body caught fire.

The fire was borne after the ‘anointing oil’ came into contact with flames from a candle that the prophetess had lighted.

The deceased subsequently received severe burns on the face, which led to her being rushed to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

However, she passed away on Wednesday after doctors failed in their quest to keep her alive.

Meanwhile, the prophetess involved in the issue is currently at large, according to the Police.
