The head pastor of Miraculous Jesus Ministry in Koforidua, Prophet Nyame Akwadaa, who was found to have illegally connected power to his church premises, has been given seven days to pay his bill or face prosecution.
The illegal connection, which covered a period of 24 months, amounted to GHC19,087.41. It was discovered on June 15 during a routine check by officials of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
Prophet Akwadaa was apprehended by a special task force of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG).
Briefing the Daily Graphic in Koforidua last Tuesday, the Eastern Regional Manager of the ECG, Mr Michael Baah, said the task force, in a surprise move,, visited the church and found out that there had been an illegal connection of electric power to the premises.
He said when the team confronted Prophet Akwadaa, he could not defend his action and was subsequently given seven days to pay the amount involved.
Mr Baah said that was the second time Prophet Akwadaa had been busted for illegal connection of power to his church.
