Chaos broke out at the Holy Ghost Revival Center of the Assemblies of God Church at South Odorkor in Accra when Rev. Owusu Bempah ‘clashed’ with former President John Dramani Mahama at the Chruch, ABC News has gathered.

Reports suggest that both former President John Mahama and Rev. Bempah had been invited by the Church to grace its 30th Anniversary.

According to reports, Rev Owusu Bempah had, in the middle of the Church service, requested to leave the event and proceed to his own church to complete the day’s service as he shares a wall with the Odorkor branch of the Assemblies of God Church.

As courtesy demands, Rev. Bempah was asked by the Resident Pastor to exchange pleasantries with the dignitaries present which included former President Mahama.

What was supposed to be peaceful engagement in correspondence to the sanctity of the occasion turned otherwise as Rev. Bempah was shoved by guards of the Former President, a video sighted by ABC News reveals.

The video shows an aid of the Former President thrusting the Rev. Bempah away from the Former President, a move that led to a brief destruction of the service.

According to reports, the Host Pastor and some other dignitaries present quickly intervened and restored calm after which Mr Bempah was ‘permitted’ to shake the Former President.

Amongst the dignitaries present was National Organizer of the NPP , Sammi Awuku , Joe Appiah, Formerr MP for Ablekuma North, General Treasurer of the Assemblies of God Church, Ghana, Rev. Dr. Sam Ato Bentil, Regional Superintendent of the A/G in Greater Accra, District Pastors, ABC News gathered.

Reports also suggest that Mahama was at the church with the Constituency Executives of Ablekuma North and the Parliamentary Candidate of the NDC in the Ablekuma North Constituency.

It is not clear what accounted for the decision by Mr Mahama’s aid to prevent Rev. Bempah from shaking the former President.

However reports suggest that the action was in retaliation to Rev. Bempah’s “continuous criticisms”  against the former President.
