A section of the general public is up in arms and calling for the head of Prophet Reindolf Oduro Gyebi, popularly known as Eagle Prophet, for his prophecy about a gas tanker explosion, which he claimed was going to happen at the Accra Mall last week.
In a news programme monitored by YEN.com.gh on GHone TV, some people shared their fears, revealing how terrified they were at the news of the impending tragedy as predicted by the pastor.
Others were of the opinion that the Eagle Prophet had to be sanctioned for spreading falsehood after the date and time he predicted went by and there was no explosion.
One man who spoke on the programme revealed, "I thought of mobilising people to go beat that eagle prophet to teach him a lesson. How could he create such fear and panic? I had to abandon my job that day and flee for my life, but the accident never happened."
Another person who traded around the area also shared his thoughts on the matter, "I was not afraid, but then my friends and I had to pack our wares and get ready for anything. Whenever we saw a fuel tanker coming, we watched it carefully to see if it was coming to explode or not. That was what we did from morning till we were tired in the evening on that Thursday."
A lady who was also interviewed over the matter remarked, "I think such prophets should be sanctioned for making those kind of prophecies, you cannot put fear in us [the public].
I was very much afraid for my life, and had to go home on that Thursday. Even the next day, I was afraid to come to school," she added
"This is getting out of hands, the churches have become too many. The government must do something about this. They must check the churches and the so-called prophets", another concerned man maintained.
The Eagle Prophet himself was in the studios of GHone TV to be interviewed on the subject and why his prediction did not come to pass as was noted with some of his prophecies.
Asked whether he would treat it as an unfair thing to be arrested by the police, he answered that the police would not even arrest him because they called him to ask more questions about the explosion so they could better prepare for any eventualities.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported the news of Eagle Prophet predicting a disaster about to happen at the Accra Mall which was going to be in the form of an explosion.
According to him, the accident would be caused by an explosive fuel tanker which would spread to the Accra mall in which about 300,000 people would lose their lives.
He indicated that the explosion was going to happen around 11:30 AM on September 20, 2018. The news caused fears and panic to some members of the general public who normally used that part of town.
