Although the cause of multiple deaths at the Kumasi Academy is yet to be established, General Overseer of the God’s Crown Chapel in Kumasi, Prophet Reindolph Oduro Gyebi, has attributed it to an evil spirit.
The man of God who predicted some happenings in the country, said the spirit killing the students, is hovering around the dining hall at the school.
According to him, the spirit per its modus operandi, invokes into the food of the students the spirit of death.
He also charged authorities to check those working at the canteen.
He said, ''I am standing as a prophet of God. The spirit is hovering around the dining hall and when the children are eating, the spirit invokes death through their meals. What is happening is in the dining hall. The spirit killing the students is in the dining hall and so those working at the canteen, should be checked,’’ he said.
He stressed that the spirit was still hovering around the dining hall and has therefore called for prayers against the evil spirit before it worsens.
Meanwhile, students at the school have been given antibiotics ollowing a suspected bacterial infection which has claimed four lives within a week, our reporter Kwabena Amoateng has reported.
