Video: Pastor arrested for conducting service despite government order banning public gatherings

Police stormed the Open Arms Ministries in the middle of a church service to arrest the Head Pastor for flouting the ban on public gatherings in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic in Ghana.

Apostle Kofi Nkrumah Sarkodie was arrested by the Ashanti Regional Police Command for holding a church service at North Suntreso in Kumasi.

When police arrived, members attempted to ignore them and continued singing praises.

However, when the officers tried to arrest their pastor, the members put up a resistance and clashed with the uniformed police officers.

In a video shared online, church members can be seen booing the police officers as their pastor was bundled into a waiting van.

This comes days after Ghanaian President Akufo-Addo announced measures to ensure that the novel Coronavirus does not spread further in the country.

These measures included a ban on social gatherings.
