Members were shocked to find a bag of herbs suspected to be marijuana in their church Sunday morning.
This happened in one of the Methodist church branches in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua, Ghana, after members who turned up in their numbers for service had a shock of their lives when the issue came to their attention.
The substance, according to reports was found in a secured place somewhere in the ceiling of their uncompleted building being used as their place of worship.
It is unclear who kept the marijuana in the church but some members suspect the culprit saw their church as a safe haven to hide the banned substance.
Speaking to Adom FM’s morning show host, Captain Smart, the Circuit Steward of the Methodist church in Koforidua, George Osei expressed shock at the incident.
He said church leaders were in Accra for an induction ceremony when members informed them about the bizarre incident.
Mr Osei said they have asked them to report the incident to the police for immediate investigations.
