Some group of men wielding guns and other offensive weapons suspected to be land guards on Monday stormed the Believers House of Worship Church, setting the 2000 capacity building ablaze.

Though the head pastor of the Church Rev. Abraham Lamptey on Accra-based Starr FM has admitted the attack was due to some land litigation issues, the Concerned Clergy Association have different views.

Rev Lamptey in an interview today disclosed that the land on which the Church is situated is a subject of court battle. He added that the same suspected thugs in three months ago carried out a similar attack at the same venue burning down his store house completely.

The Rev. Minister lamented that though he reported the first attack to the security agencies, he was simply asked by the Manet Police to go find the suspects and surrender them to the station, only for them to visit another attack on the Church on Monday.

But speaking on the incident, Bishop Benny Wood, the President of the Concerned Clergy Association insisted that President Akufo-Addo must take the blame for failing to deal decisively with acts of violence across the country.

The Clergy man maintained that he will continue to blame the President since the thugs were said to be driving in NPP branded pick up vehicle.

He also added that the police have not made any attempts in arresting the gun men for questioning, whether they are NPP members or not.
