Police hunting for Pastor whose church member drowned during baptism at Weija

The video of a 20-year-old man named Yaw Kyeremeh losing his life while been baptised in the Weija river in Accra popped up on social media yesterday and it has shocked many as a custom which was supposed to give him a new spiritual life rather took his mortal being.

According to the Accra Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Effia Tenge the junior pastor had been arrested at the scene while police were still searching for the head pastor of the church involved in the baptism.

In the video captured, after the man believed to be the pastor muttered some words of prayers, immersed him into the river; head backwards, and lifted him up the first time but strangely for Kyeremeh, he sunk deep down into the water just about the time he was being immersed the second time.

At this time, the pastor swam to safety while he called for help to retrieve Kyeremeh’s body but it proved futile as his body wasn’t found at the exact spot he drowned.

Per voices in the recorded piece, the baptizer and Kyeremeh were advised not to go far into the river for the exercise since it was quite deep.
