Christ Embassy Church

The mass crowd at the Christ Embassy Church event at the Fantasy Dome

The police have served notice the Christ Embassy Church is being investigated for allegedly gathering at the Fantasy Dome, Trade Fair Centre in Accra “in flagrant disregard of COVID-19 protocols.”

The police announcement follows outright condemnation of the church event on social media on Sunday as large members of the youth wing of the church were seen in trending videos without masks worshiping in the enclosed area.

“Trending videos of the alleged gathering, dubbed “Pneumatic Night” show a non-mask wearing mass crowd, screaming, chanting and dancing to the “evangelism” of non-mask wearing leaders; putting the entire country at risk of spreading COVID-19,” a statement from the police said.

It added: “The police have since Sunday morning locked up the Fantasy Dome and have started questioning leaders of the Church and management of the Fantasy Dome about the event. Any person found culpable will be arrested and duly prosecuted.”
