Lighthouse chapel international church at Kumasi Bantama reportedly shut down by angry youth
Bishop Dag Heward Mills, founder and leader of the Lighthouse Chapel International has lamented about some faceless persons who he claims have an agenda to see his churches in the Ashanti Region closed.
According to the lighthouse Bishop, the release of the said recording, which he claims was made 20 years ago, is an attempt by some persons to get his churches in the Ashanti Region closed.
The preacher man came under intense pressure from some section of Ghanaians especially subjects of the Ashanti kingdom who deemed his sermon as an insult to their king.
Several youth groups numbering about about five staged protest within the Kingdom and demanded the preacher man apologizes. Many have described the sermon by the preacher man as baseless and unfounded.
In the audio leak, the preacher man was heard castigating the King Otumfuor Osei Tutu and lamented how bad resources under his custody have not been used judiciously to develop the kingdom.
No one knows who leaked the audio but the preacher man subsequently apologized and pleaded for forgiveness in an official letter written by him.
The youth who weren’t satisfied demanded he comes in person to apologize before the king or else his churches within the region will be closed down.
Fast forward today, the youth true to their words have locked the Bantama branch of the church in strong protestation to the preacher man.
The Asante force closure of the church comes on the back of an earlier threat from 5 Asante youth groups led by Kumasi Youth Association (KUYA) demanding an apology from the leader and founder of Lighthouse Chapel International, Bishop Dag Heward-Mills after his alleged demeaning comments to Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
