A preacher woman who was being reproached on why she did not have a mask on turned aggressive on authorities when she was asked to wear one.
According to her, if indeed there was a disease that was killing people then she would rather want to die because she has God on her side.
The policeman in charge of operations at the Central business district in Accra, in trying to calm the nerves of the livid preacher woman told her to just put it on yet, she was still insistent that it is only God who can protect anyone and not any mask like they have been directed to do.
She further explained that he who was without sin would not be affected by the coronavirus because God protects and keeps those who faithfully serve him in safe hands.
Another woman who had a baby strapped at her back also said she does not believe there is a thing such as coronavirus.
According to her, God was greater than the coronavirus disease.
Even when authorities were trying to convince her of the times in the bible that there were plagues that killed people, she still held on to her belief that there was nothing like coronavirus.
She also argued that she would not wash her hands for no reason and also blantly refused to wear her mask when she was requested to do so for her own good.
