Fiapre (B/A), Sept. 12, GNA – Some suspected
armed robbers on Sunday broke into the premises of Living Grace Ministries
International at Berlin-Top, a suburb of Fiapre in the Sunyani West District,
and stole worshipping equipment worth 
over  GH¢100,000.00.     

The items stolen included  Belinger Composers (Compressor), Allen and
Heath 24000 mixer board, TRX 4000 Amplifier, TRX 2500 amplifier, Yamaha E950
keyboard, Yamaha 9000 keyboard, two LCD 32 inches Television, Strong decoder
and turner Amplifier.      

Bishop Dr Richard Owusu Akyeaw, Founder and
General Overseer of the Church, told the Ghana News Agency at Fiapre that at
0600 hrs that day, he had a distressed call from Pastor Kofi Boateng, the
Church Administrator, informing him about the incident.  

Bishop Dr Akyeaw said he realised upon arrival
at the scene that the robbers took advantage of the absence of a private
security man employed at the place and entered the Church through the back
window by cutting the metal mesh with a very sharp implement they left
behind.
     

He said the security personnel only known as
Thomas, initially when interrogated claimed he left the place at about 0530 hrs
when the incidence had not occurred.    

But upon further interrogation, Bishop Akyeaw
added, Thomas confessed following a telephone call from his wife at 0900 hrs on
Saturday that one of his children was sick, he left for home at Dumasua, also
in Sunyani West and did not return to the site.    

He said the matter had been reported to the
Police who have visited the scene and commenced investigation into it whilst
the private security man had also been arrested by the Police to ascertain
their investigation.   

Bishop Akyeaw appealed to the general public
to assist the Police with information that could lead to the arrest of the
culprits to halt such immoral acts in the society.
