The police said they will investigate the cisis.

The Ghanaian Police said in Accra on Monday that it will investigate the cause of the stampede and death in the Ghana branch of the Synagogue Church of all Nations.

The Ghanaian media on Sunday widely reported that a stampede at the church located at Spintex Road led to the death of several worshipers while many others were injured.

According to the reports, worshipers were rushing for free `Holy Water’ gift being distributed during the service when the stampede occurred.

A statement by the Accra Police Public Relations Officer, Freeman Tetteh, said that thorough investigation would be conducted to ascertain the root cause of the incident.

According to him, it is possible that “eagerness and rush” by worshipers lead to such situation.

“But the police is determined to get to the root of the problem, we are swinging into action immediately to uncover what led to the problem,’’ he said.

Meanwhile, former Coordinator of Ghana’s National Disaster Management Organisation, Douglas Asiedu, has called on churches to adhere to safety rules in the interest of the lives of worshipers.

“It is also the responsibility of the security agencies, especially the Police to ensure that all churches strictly follow safety procedures while assembling worshippers,’’ he said.

“There is nothing wrong for churches to invite the Police and other safety organs to coordinate and ensure crowd control during services that command a large crowd,’’ he said.

The Ghanaian Church is a branch of the Synagogue Church of all Nations owned by Nigerian pastor, T.B. Joshua.

    What can we say now? If these death news came from other churches like
    white garments church etc all the basket mouths will begins talk often
    of words. I had heard the news but only God knows why its happened. T.B
    Joshuah, stated that the Holy Water will be More Powerful. Hence maybe
    the devil himself want him to do new miracles with new Holy Water. But
    he fails. I am strongly belief that Africans are too religious. That’s
    why we merely remain destitute and flashpoint nations in the world. We
    essential to wake up and walk hard for the success of our future
    generations. They are easily belief miracles and signs. And forget about
    the Holy Life. “Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble
    before Him, all the earth.” (Psalm 96:9) But African adores Solution
    Center Ministries than walk in the Holiness. The Lord is in His holy
    temple, the Lord’s throne is in heaven; his eyes behold, His eyelids
    test the sons of men.” (Psalm 11:4) Thus, Matthew 6:33 Seek first the
    kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added
    to you. Like Favor,Breakthrough, Divine Happy marriage etc.
    Hosea
    4:6: My people are destroyed because they lack knowledge of me. Because
    you rejected that knowledge. Please seek the Holy Life and say No to run
    unto the Solution Center Ministries for quick Miracles and signs alone.
    May God bless those whom has ear. I am Marley by name..
