The bus which picked up the worshippers from Suame was headed to a prayer camp at Adadietem in the Ejisu Municipality, where congregants of the Pentecost Church Ghana, usually converge to worship.

Just as the passengers ran out of the bus, it caught fire.

Fire officers from the KNUST Fire Station responded to a distress call and put off the fire.

The passengers had most of their belongings burnt.

A new bus was subsequently arranged for them, which conveyed them to their destination.

Station Officer 2 at the KNUST Fire Station, Ohene Gyembibi, narrated the incident to Citi News and added that “we mobilised another vehicle and conveyed them back to the Ejisu prayer camp.”
