Musama Peace festival turns chaos

Police in the Central region is said to have prevented members of the Musama Disco Christo Church (MDCC) from holding its annual Peace festival.

According to reports, over 1000 church members who converged at the church’s headquarters at Gomoa Mozano are stranded.

The Church founded in 1922 by first Prophet Jemisimiham Jehu-Appiah, a former Catechist at the Methodist Church who instituted the Peace festival

The festival is organized annually at MDCC’s headquarters (Mozano), to bring all church members far and near to worship and also to win souls for Christ.

But this year’s event has been marred by violence following the long standing dispute between the leadership of the church after the death of its leader.

Nana Kofi Arhin of local radio station, Obromakoma FM who was at the scene said police personnel have taken over the venue and has ordered the leadership of the church to park out of the place.

He revealed that, the other faction who see themselves as the true members petitioned the police to stop the event from happening.

However, the current leadership expressed shock at the conduct of the police since they gave them the green light to organize the event.

He noted that, members of the Church were shocked to see armed policemen patrolling the town because nothing had happened in the town since the beginning of the festival.

The man of God said they will go ahead with the Peace Festival with or without the protection of the police.

A youth leader in the church who only gave his name as Daniel said he is mobilizing his people to faceoff with the police.

“The police cannot prevent us from worshiping God. There is freedom of worship and that is what we will do”.

Daniel called on the IGP to as a matter of urgency call his men to order or face their wrath.
