A church in Ghana has been attacked by Muslim youth after it's pastor prophesied the death of the country's chief imam in 2019.
In a sermon on 31st December, Rev Owusu-Bempah made 18 prophecies for the upcoming year, including the death of either Imam Sharabutu or Ghana's Muslim Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia.
The pastor was reportedly asked by some Muslims to apologise to the Imam but he refused to do so.
As a result, armed with machetes, the group destroyed an organ, windows and chairs in the pastor's Glorious Word and Power Ministry in Accra on Wednesday.
They even streamed their attack live on Facebook.
Imam Sharabutu has called for calm.
