TB Joshua banned from hosting revival in Ghana after stampede that killed 4
Ghanaian authorities have temporarily banned the Ghana branch of TB Joshua's Synagogue Church of All Nation from hosting revivals, days after four people were killed and 13 more injured in a stampede during a church service on Sunday May 19th.
Tousands of people flocked to the church after church officials announced that holy water would be distributed. During the rush for the anointed water, three men and one man lost their lives after being trampled over.
Ghanaian authorities said the stampede could have been avoided if the church had used a bigger venue. The church is no longer allowed to hold revivals at their Spintex Auditorium in Accra.
