Christ Embassy in Trouble: The Christ Embassy's 'Pneumatic Night' is being investigated by the Ghana Police

According to the Ghana Police Service, an inquiry has been initiated into the organization of a church conference in Accra that culminated in thousands of people converging on a single venue.


Pneumatic Night 2021 was held at the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair Centre on Friday, April 30, 2021, and was organized by the Christ Embassy Church.


People worshipped without face masks and in a seating configuration that defied state-directed social distancing procedures, according to photos and videos from the night.


In a press release, the Police announced that the organizers failed to provide them with enough information to “oversee a case of this magnitude.”


The church's intervention not only puts the whole country at risk of a third coronavirus outbreak, but it also violates the Imposition of Restriction Act, according to the Service.


“The case, which was promoted as a Church Service and did not normally need warning under the Public Order Act, was planned behind the Police's back. Since Sunday morning, police have had the Fantasy Dome locked up and have been interviewing Church leaders and Fantasy Dome management about the event.”


The Ghana Police Service has stated that anybody found to be culpable during the investigation would be investigated and prosecuted.


Meanwhile, police officers have been sent to the Christ Embassy Service Centre at UPSA, where a similar scheme has been advertised to continue.


According to the police, the program was held following all Covid-19 protocols.


The Service stated that it would not hesitate to subject any individual or party to legal penalties if they violate the Imposition of Restrictions Act.
