A prophetess, Ewura Esi Amanda, has been struck and killed by lightning at Assin Fosu in the Central Region. Amanda, who is the spiritual leader of the International Christian Bible Church, was struck dead at her house on Sunday. The incident happened at about 8:30 pm.
According to Blessing Kwame Mensah an eyewitness, the prophetess did not go to church that fateful Sunday. He said around 8pm it started raining heavily and the prophetess, who operates a mini mart at her house, was packing her wares into the shop when the lightning struck.
Mensah said she was later found unconscious in front of her residence, prompting onlookers to rush her to the St. Francis Xavier hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival. The 30 years old mother left behind three children.
