Widow, children storm late Pastor’s church to claim ownership

Osofo Maame Nketia, the wife of late Reverend George Akwasi Nketia of Heirs church at Bubuashie in Accra disrupted the church’s Sunday service in a bid to claim ownership of the church.

Adom News reported that a pastor was preaching when Mrs. Nketia and her children stormed the church accusing the pastors of treating them unfairly.

Efforts by the church leadership to calm the aggrieved wife and children proved futile as they claimed they are now the new owners of the church.

Before Mrs Nketia and her children were forced out of the church by a policeman, who also closed the church, she was seen attacking some members of the church.

The church secretary, Kwame Wereko, while explaining the stance of the church said the widow of their late pastor acted out of emotions.

He said though the late Rev. Nketia had served the church for the past 13 years, he did not own the church.

“The church was built with the hard-earned monies of church members; Rev. Nketia did not contribute a penny so he cannot will it to his wife” he opined.

Mr. Wereko maintained that, the decision by Mrs Nketia to disrupt church service was borne out of malice.

“She brought other pastors outside the church to ordain her pastor which is against the rule of the church. There is no way we will hand over the church to her; it’s not her husband’s property” he added.
