Commenting on Twitter, Mr Benjamin said the claim was unbelievable and could not be true.

The Pentecost church's claim is contained in the 2015 annual report of the church, which also captures several other miracles purportedly performed by its pastors across the country.

“The church continued to experience the supernatural presence and workings of God in the form of miracles, signs and wonders. The dead were raised to life, the deaf and dumb were healed, the paralyzed received healing, the blind had their sight restored and the barren were blessed with fruit of the womb,” the report said.

It said in the Lasssia Tuolu district in the Wa area, Elder Domare (a middle-aged man) was said to be dead in November 2015 and that preparations were being made for his funeral when the district overseer of the church visited his residence and directed that all elders lay their hands on the body for prayers.

The pastor, according to the report, commanded the dead man to rise and “to the glory of God, Elder Domare came back to life”.

The report added that in Mbonubo, a nine-year-old boy in the Yendi district died and was prayed for by the leadership and members of the Yendi local assembly.
