Police sources in Accra stated that the four dead persons comprised of three females and young boy. Thirteen others were injured in the stampede. The Nigerian born controversial priest is the founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), church with a large following in Lagos suburb and also a televangelism arm that parades miracles and prophesies ranging from claims of AIDS /HIV cure, plane crashes and outcomes of soccer matches.

A Greater Accra Police Public Relations Officer DSP Freeman Tetteh confirmed the death to journalists claiming that the dead have all been taken to the morgue while those injured are currently receiving medical treatment.

The police officer also stated that the church was forced to close down its service following the tragic incident.

Last week, bodyguards to Pastor Joshua illegally detained some Ghanaian journalists during a church service. It is unclear if the Ghanaian police plans to investigate the deaths or filing charges against the operators of the church.
