The criminal investigations department of the Ghana Police service has officially charged four members of the Christ Embassy Church for flouting covid-19 protocols after the church held an event dubbed ‘Pneumatic Night’.

The charges levelled against them include failure to comply with restrictions imposed contrary to Regulation 4 of the Imposition of Restrictions (coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic) (No. 16) instrument, 2020 Executive Instrument (E.I.) 395 and Section 6 of the imposition of the restriction Act, 2020 (Act 1012).

The Police service were compelled to open investigations into the circumstances under which the Church decided to breach covid-19 protocols and organize the event which brought together thousands of Church members at the Fantasy Dome of the Accra International Trade Fair Center.

Government as part of measures to tackle a surge in covid-19 infections announced a ban on social gatherings and other social events which involved huge numbers of people, the move is said to have drastically resulted in a sharp decline of infections, paving way for a marginal ease of restrictions.

There have been 92,828 infections and 783 coronavirus-related deaths reported in the country since the pandemic began.
