Ghanaians are divided over the video circulating on social media involving some angry youth vandalizing properties at the premises of the Glorious Wave Chapel International, a church owned by Apostle Dr. Owusu Bempah.
One of the topical issues in the public domain currently is the scores of videos circulating on social media involving various prophets pronouncing doom on some prominent people.
Among them was the self-proclaiming 'Nation's Prophet', Isaac Owusu Bempah who is currently under siege.
Before the attack on his church and personality, Owusu Bempah, who is known for such doom prophecies said that the National Chief Imam will pass on this year.
On January 1 2019, a video began circulating involving Owusu Bempah telling his congregation on 31st December Watch-night Service that some prominent persons will die in 2019 so his congregation should pray for them.
The controversial preacher mentioned the likes of former President John Agyekum Kufuor and his wife Madam Theresa Kufuor, ex-President John Dramani Mahama, Chief Imam Sheik Osman Nuhu Sharubutu among others.
This pronouncement was not taken lightly by some youth said to be Muslims who got angry and took to retaliation because their leader the Sheikh was mentioned by the preacher as one of those to die.
While the angry youth were vandalizing properties at the premises of the preacher's church, someone purported to be one of them was taking a footage.
When the footage was posted on Instagram by popular blogger Zion Felix, Ghanaian Instagram users on watching the video got divided with some saying the action was wrong while others were in full support of it.
Below are some comments written by those who watched the video:

Everyday death n scary prophecies, we tired of those fake news so this is a lesson to the remaining fake pastors."
@b.e.e.d.r.i.s advised by writing: "On behalf of educated Muslims all over the world, educated in not just Western education but our religion and morals I sincerely apologise....Islam isn't anything like this don't let this people make u have a wrong view about Muslims please "
@gabbystone_ in support of the action wrote: "Yh is the right thing...as a pastor instead of u calling the person in private to tell him so u guys can do something about it u re saying out to the public...they should destroy everything"
@drokbj_gh disagreed and commented: "I think the guys are taking it to another level. if care is not taking things will go bad between these two religions. we pray against that anyway."
Watch video that generated the debate.
Currently the premises of the Glorious Wave Chapel International is being guided by some officers of the Ghana Police Service and the Ghana Army.
