According to the lady pastor, her daughter had asked her to take the lead and promised to come with the other siblings when 30 minutes later, a resident rushed to inform her about the fire outbreak.
As sad as her loss was, the reverend minister said she remains grateful that her lastborn had gone to the church with her before the fire started.
Sista Afia also used the opportunity to clear the air on rumours going around that her 16-year-old daughter was the cause of the fire because she had left to her boyfriend's place.
To that, Sista Afia commented:
"I am going through a lot so I don’t like what they are saying about me and my daughter. If she left for her boyfriend’s house, how come she is part of the dead children?” she asked
The sad incident happened on Wednesday, 28th October 2020 dawn at Fise a town near Amasaman in the Ga North Municipality in the Greater Accra Region.
The children aged, 16, 13, 9 and 7 were asleep when the fire gutted their four-bedroom house.
Outside that heavy loss, YEN.com.gh also reported that a disturbing video of a taxi and another saloon car that were trapped in floodwater after just an hour of heavy downpour has raised many eyebrows on social media.
