Covid-19: Christ Embassy church in trouble for breach of safety protocols.

The Ghana branch of the Christ Embassy church is about to be in trouble with the law as there are ground swells of protest across social media against the Church for what many term as breach of Covid-19 protocols and restrictions by the Church in its decision to organise an open conference last Friday.


The Church, whose founder is the renowned Nigerian Pastor, Chris Oyakhilome organised a massive gathering of Church faithfuls in the Dome conference hall in Accra.


The miracle worshipers enjoyed their night in an ecstatic mood, singing and praising their maker through unguarded physical interactions, however, when pictures of the event floated on Facebook, it depicted a lawless atmosphere to the viewer as far as Covid-19 protocols are concerned.


Evidence from the pictures show members of the Church standing physically close to each. There were no visible sign of people in nose masks while singing and dancing. The venue itself is an enclosed space with little ventilation. The above, are all contrary to the instituted measures against the deadly Covid-19 disease.


Soon, Ghanaians on the app began questioning the propriety of the event, which obviously was organised by lettered men and women who should know better.


The worry expressed by many is that, the deadly Covid-19 is not over. The disease is now causing more havoc in Indian due to people's disregard for the safety protocols just like this Chris Embassy church's activity. The worry is gradually turning into a protest and call for the authorities to look for leaders of the church and let the law take its cause.


People are calling for the church to be sanctioned.


Some relevant questions that are being ask are that; where are the authorities in the first place? Who authorised or approved for the even to take place?


The way social media is taking the matter, it shall soon trend and the church may soon find itself into trouble.


Check out some pictures from the Friday night event:
