Blame Nana Akufo-Addo for arson – Concerned Clergy

The president of the Concerned Clergy Association Bishop Benny Wood told Accra-based Starr FM that the attack occurred because Nana Addo has failed to let the law punish violent people in the country since he took office.

The president of the Concerned Clergy Association Bishop Benny Wood told Accra-based Starr FM that the attack occurred because Nana Addo has failed to let the law punish violent people in the country since he took office.

“I will put the blame directly at the door step of the President, we have not arrested the people to find out whether they are members of the NPP…..If they came there with NPP pick up and they were NPP people who gave them that power to do that.  All things point to the fact that their Political party owns this nation and once that political party wins power they become the owner of Ghana and can do whatever they want.”

Reports suggest that on Monday (August 28, 2017) gun wielding men dressed in NPP colours set the 2000 seating capacity church on fire.

The head pastor of the church Rev Abraham Lamptey said the land on which the church was situated is a subject of a court battle.

However, he said he was not surprised this happened because the same men had set the church’s store house on fire 3 months ago.

“I saw this coming because three-four months ago, the same group of thugs came in the same pickup and set the store house on fire, we reported the incident to the Manet Police they came around and did their investigation.  The next day we followed up and they told us if we find the suspect we should bring the suspect to them only for them to come back yesterday and burn the whole place.”
