Surveillance cameras on church premises has become imperative to ensure security – Assemblies of God General Secretary

The man of God was stabbed by his nephew at the church premises where he was preparing to deliver a sermon, leading to his sad death at the Tema General Hospital where he was rushed for treatment.

The incident has left the congregation of Rev Dr David Nabegmado and the entire Assemblies of God church as well as most Ghanaians devastated.

Speaking about how to forestall recurrence of such a cruel incident, the General Secretary of the Greater Accra East region of the Assemblies of God, Reverend Alfred Akumbe has urged the leadership of the Pentecostal churches to provide security cameras on church premises.


“We will be glad if surveillance and security cameras are provided in our church premises to help enhance our security and also help to detect criminals who invade the church premises,” Reverend Akumbe told Accra-based Adom FM.

He added that “I stopped everything I was doing and went there” after receiving a call from the Superintendent General of the Assemblies of God Church, Reverend Frimpong Manso who informed him about the incident.

Meanwhile, the suspected murderer identified as Francis Nabegmado is in police custody assisting investigation.

He is alleged to have committed the murder following a disagreement between him and the deceased regarding a deity.

According to reports, the suspect who had been living in the mission house brought some gods to the house to worship and his uncle objected to the decision.
