While Pastor Nimako Boansi and his two sons were ordered to surrender their belongings at gun point, Pastor Abankwa Ntiamoah for the fear of losing his life had to leave personal belongings behind and run from his vehicle to take cover in the bush.

The pastors who narrated their ordeal to the Daily Graphic said it was a “do or die affair” that fateful Tuesday nightThe Asokwa Divisional Police Command is investigating the  incident that occurred between Twedie and Foase in the Atwima Kwanwoma District of the region.
