The three masked robbers reportedly stormed the church at about 3:00am during prayer service.

The attack brought the church service to an abrupt end, leaving the congregation in a state of shock.

Head Pastor of the Church, Richard Amponsah-Acheampong, said the robbers were in the church for about 45 minutes.

"We shall make proper arrangements with the policemen so that they will be there. We can’t take it for granted, and it is my advice to all those who are planning such events to make arrangements with the police or any security agents that will protect them against such incidents," he said.

In addition, the leadership of the church has lodged a formal complaint at the Suntreso/Sofoline Police Station for investigations.
