Founder and leader of the Lord’s Parliament Chapel, Apostle Francis Amoako-Atta, has attributed the drowning incident that occurred at Apam in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region to orchestrations of spiritual forces.
According to Apostle Amoako-Atta, “the misfortune in the Apam community leading to the death of some 12 teenagers who went swimming was intended for sacrificial purposes. And, unfortunately too because the youths sneaked there, the route they used was where the gods were, so they stepped on the river gods”.
“What covenant exists in the town with the origin of the name ‘Apam’? Why didn’t the incident occur on any other day but [a day after] Independence day? and have you checked what the numeral 64 stands for? he quizzed.
“I am telling you that it was the water that came for the children. It was organized for the sea to swallow them up for sacrifice, that is why survivors who were able to withstand the pressure from the water reported that, a turbulent water beat against the shores and dragged the victims along,” he added.
Residents of Apam were left in a state of mourning after more than 10 bodies of children were retrieved from the Apam River on Sunday, March 10, 2021. The bodies according to report are among some 25 children feared dead.
Although the river was inaccessible to residents due to the restrictions on beach activities, the children managed to visit the river on the blind side of their parents.
Furthering his argument on Accra-based Original FM’s ‘Asem titrew’, segment on the Evening News bulletin on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, Apostle Amoako-Atta said: “I heard ‘a child who had a strong spirit was able to make it out of the water.’ Think about it. What kind of child is that whose spirit is so strong that the water could not overwhelm him?”
With biblical allusion (Matthew 8:23-27, Luke 8:22-25 etc.) where Jesus spoke to the turbulent water and it calmed, Prophet Amoako-Atta explained that the storm that beat against the shores and dragged the children leading to the death of some was driven by spiritual forces.
“Jesus commanded the storm to calm and it did. Behind the water that almost drowned Him, and his disciples was a spirit. So the water which overflowed its bank and drowned all those children was driven by a spirit.”
He concluded by urging traditional rulers and Prophets in Apam to stand and pray for intercessory from God to break the strong covenant if not this will not be the end to accidents in Apam.
