Two mobile preachers drew attention at the Kumasi Central Market in the Ashanti region of Ghana on Wednesday afternoon after they engaged in fisticuffs over offertory.
According to GhanaWeb, the self-acclaimed men of God converted the
market into a boxing arena on December 20, ripping each other’s clothes
in the process.
Reports indicate that the two mobile preachers
identified as Evangelist Samuel Kwame Boateng and Evangelist Kwame Poku,
have been engaging in verbal assaults frequently over offertory from
passersby but the situation degenerated into a public fisticuff on
Samuel Kwame Boateng who spoke in an interview after the brawl said his
colleague preacher has been insulting; issuing threats and makes
attempts to attack him physically.
He said he was then advised by one of the women at the market to beat
his colleague preacher to serve as a deterrent hence his actions which
rather degenerated into a fight which onlookers described as shameful.
