At least five youth groups in the Ashanti Region have threatened to close down all the branches of the Lighthouse Chapel in the region following comments made by its founder against the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
The group described a viral audio remark made by the founder of Lighthouse Chapel as a grand scheme to defame the Asantehene.
The main group comprising Kumasi Youth Association, Asante Youth Association among others is calling on Bishop Heward-Mills to seek “wise counsel” on the development or face their wrath.
The Secretary of Kumasi Youth Association, Kwabena Frimpong who addressed a news conference in Kumasi on Monday 21 June called on the founder of the Lighthouse Chapel to act within 48 hours or face their wrath.
“We are calling on Bishop Dag to seek wise counsel within 48 hours. Otherwise, none of his churches in the Asanteman enclave will be allowed to operate.
“Also, we are warning all and sundry who hide behind religion and politics to push this evil agenda against Asanteman and his royal majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu. We will let them know that we will meet them up with brute force,” Frimpong served notice.
