Residents of Assin Fosu in the Assin North Municipality of the Central Region were shocked when the spiritual leader of the International Christian Bible Church, Prophetess Ewura Esi Amanda, was struck dead by thunder at her residence Sunday evening.
The body has been deposited at the St Francis Xavier Hospital mortuary for preservation and autopsy.
Briefing DAILY GUIDE, Blessing Kwame Mensah, an eyewitness, said the incident happened at about 8:30 pm.
Mr. Mensah stated that the prophetess, who stays at Assin Foso Mempasem behind Stroman Preparatory School, failed to go to the church on that Sunday and decided to attend to her own business.
He added that around 8:pm it started raining, compelling the woman of God, who operates a mini mart at her house, to start packing her wares into the shop but unfortunately she was struck by the thunder.
Mr Mensah disclosed that Prophetess Amanda was later found unconscious in front of her residence, which compelled onlookers to rush her to the hospital where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
She left behind two girls.
