Police caution religious leaders to be measured in communicating prophecies

The police say they are not against prophecies but cautioned religious leaders to be circumspect with their utterances

The police have cautioned Ghanaians especially religious groups and leaders to be measured in their utterances, especially how they communicate prophecies.

According to the police, over the years, communication of prophecies of harm, danger and death, by some religious leaders, have created tension and panic in the Ghanaian society and put the lives of many people in fear and danger.

“We want to caution that under Ghanaian law, it is a crime for a person to publish or reproduce a statement, rumour or report which is likely to cause fear and alarm to the public or to disturb the public peace, where that person has no evidence to prove that the statement, rumour or report is true,” the police said in a statement.
