Police have locked up the Fantasy Dome at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra following reports that the youth of the Christ Embassy Church held a mammoth event at the venue on Friday, April 30, 2021, where COVID-19 protocols were flagrantly breached.
The Ghana Police Service, in a statement, said they are investigating the event which was organised “at the blind side of the police.”
“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.”
The police in the statement announced that “any person found culpable will be arrested and duly prosecuted.”
Trending videos of the alleged gathering, dubbed “Pneumatic Night” showed a mostly unmasked crowd, screaming, chanting and dancing to the “evangelism” of their unmasked preachers.
Police condemned the action saying it puts “the entire country at risk of spreading COVID-19.”
“The Police did not provide security for the said event. In fact, the organisers did not give notice of the event to any Police Officer or Station. The event, advertised as a Church Service which ordinarily did not require notice under the Public Order Act, was organized at the blind side of the Police.”
