The people of Nogokpo, a town in the Volta region, have advised Archbishop Charles Agyinasare to stop his church’s 7-day fasting and prayers and rather seek forgiveness.
The founder of Perez Chapel International recently sparked anger among the chiefs and residents of Nogokpo when he referred to the town as “the demonic headquarters in the Volta region” in one of his sermons.
The town’s elders gave him a 14-day ultimatum to come and make peace with them, but instead, his church announced a weeklong fasting in support of him.
However, the Nogokpo community says the Archbishop is leading his followers astray.
In a Facebook post, Nogokpo wrote: “The worst thing happening to our continent is the way ‘some’ Christian leaders ignorantly mislead their followers based on their selfish interest.”
They noted that Archbishop Agyinasare insulted “a whole community and not a shrine or deity” and the chiefs asking for an apology “are not chief priests or any evil doers.”
Nogokpo advised: “The best thing to do is rather apologize and be free. Do not wait for this to turn any spiritual which you might not win.”
