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.

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