The Assemblies of God Church Ghana has taken a swipe at the media for publishing claims by the nephew of their murdered pastor that he was an occultist.
According to the General Superintendent of the church, Reverend Frimpong Manso, reporting the claims of the suspect that Rev. Dr. David Nabegmado was an occultist amounts to character assassination.
He said “it is immoral, wrong, painful and destructive to destroy somebody’s hard earned character, when the children, the wife, the family and the church are mourning”.
He made the comments on Monday when he, together with other pastors of the Church, paid a visit to the family of the deceased pastor.
Rev. Manso charged the media to “grow and desist from such character.”
