At least 4 people have been confirmed dead in Pastor T.B. Joshua’s Synagogue Church Of All Nations in Spintex Road, Ghana.

The tragic incident occurred after a stampede ensued at the church Sunday during the distribution of free holy water.

Greater Accra Police Public Relations Officer DSP Freeman Tetteh confirmed the death to Joy News and said the bodies of the deceased have been deposited at the 37 and Police Hospital mortuaries.

Some 13 persons were also severely injured during the incident.

Thousands of people had flocked the church in pursuit of healing, spiritual and financial breakthrough.

The holy water, to many TB Joshua followers is acclaimed to be the panacea to the many spiritual afflictions.

This is so sad. I hope people will learn a lasting lesson from this. While I have nothing against what people believe I pray that "faith" will not cause us to forget intellect. RIP to those who lost their live, speedy recovery to those who were injured. To those who are left questioning, I hipe they find some answers.

Did Joshua foresee this? I mean did he prophecy this? If yes,I wanna see the video,if not,he should hide his face in shame.

I so agree with you Ola. I wont even comment on TBJ. I am just sad that people would actually rush to their deaths. Illiteracy will kill us all. Jesus never told anyone to worship Him, He has always taught people about how to be reconnect to God. People are so focused on the person rather than the message. How I wish we could understand the teachings of Jesus, understand the message and move away from looking for answers outside rather then finding answers within.

I call believers to turn to:- 2 kings 4 verse 27.Elisha was a man of God.He prophesied to the shunammite woman of a son.And God visited the woman and she bore a son.The son latter died.The woman went to Elisha and all this while God didnt reveal it to Elisha. Elisha told Gehazi and i quote "let her alone coz she is in bitter distress,and the Lord has hidden it from me".Did that mean Elisha was not a man of God?????.Did it make him a liar???.Did it discredit him to be God's servant??????.Word is enough for the wise.I am not judging anyone.Can TB joshua's case be related to Elishas story????God has His own way of doing things.God bless us all.

"A Prophet has no honour in his own country (John 4:39-45)" these were the words of Jesus Christ. May be some Nigerians should leave T.B Joshua alone, if you don't believe whatever he's doing, let God judge him at his own time and stop judging him. Ghanaians are too stingy, because the anointing water was going to be given out freely, that was why they all trooped there. If it were for sale, i wonder how many of them would have gone there.
So please leave T.B Joshua out of this. My fellow Ghanaians should learn how to give and not always open their palms to receive.

Personally I have notin against dis man nd I don't expect anyone to be either.I want every man to be careful about what they say cuz whatever u say mayb used against u at d last day.Come to tink of diz, what if diz TB joshua is geniun and mayb d devil is only tryin to destroy his ministries.Let mi reveal one simple truth to everyone, d devil does and give things dat pleases d eye, he wil never kill wit blood in his hands bcuz he knows he's d devil, if diz man called TB is d devil den why will he kill to destroy his own ministry.Nigerians be wise and is time we stop being f*****h to d devil's trick.Remember dat even Jesus was surrounded wit controversy yet he neva stoped carrying d mantle.Let us all be careful wit our utterances so as to avoid God's wrath on us all, remember what d scripture teaches, Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm.No one is forcing anybody to believe in d prophet but let us be fair in judgement.Am not speaking to exonorate anybody infact I don't even know diz TB and I worship at a different church but am just concerned about what people says in ignorance and end up in to jeopardy or destructions.Be wise

pray for your pastor , & stop judges any body so that you will not be judge . Do not let your heart be trouble trust in God . The axe is ready to cut down the tree at the root every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down , so don judge .
