A gang of armed robbers ambushed a Ghanaian community in South Africa during a Church of Pentecost worship.
An account on X (previously Twitter), @eddie_wrt, posted a video showing the gun-wielding guys who broke into the auditorium during the ceremony, attacking members of the congregation.
The congregation was being robbed by armed bandits at gunpoint as the preacher was finishing his sermon when an instant of anarchy broke out.
Targeted particularly, the robbers took phones and valuables from the preacher, who was thought to be the assembly’s leader, and looted the other worshippers as well.
One of the bandits came up to the pulpit and forced the minister to show them where the money was stored.
A church elder was abducted in the process, according to the story.
