Some Muslim youth wielding machetes and other crude weapons on Wednesday afternoon attacked and vandalised the Odorkor branch of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International in Accra.
The Church, headed by Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah, was attacked following death prophecies he released on New Year’s Eve.
The attack on the Odorkor branch of the church, was the youths’ way of expressing their fury against some prophecies made by the leader of the church during Monday’s watch night service.
They threatened to deal with Rev Owusu Bempah till he comes out to apologise for the ‘prophecies of doom’.
They destroyed the signboard at the church premises before heading into the main auditorium.
In reaction to the attack on his facebook page, Rev Owusu Bempah quoted from Matthew 16:18 which says “…I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it”.
“Let’s pray for the church and let’s be strong as Christians,” the post added.
The controversial prophet made several predictions during the 31st December service in his church, noting that several prominent men, including an ex-president and a former first lady, would die in the course of the year.
The prophet also stated in his revelation that a National Islamic funeral beckon which would be the funeral of a Vice President of a sitting president and a Chief Imam, if nothing is done to avert the doom.
