Afia Pokua disclosed that she was lucky to have escaped only because she was just at the entrance when the irate group attacked them. Per her account, some of the group who were arrested that Saturday night has been granted bail, and that is very much aggressive towards the media and any person outside their circles.

“Dwanena and Teacher Anointing has been locked up. I managed to escape their attack. A driver who saw me quickly picked me up and we have reported the issue to the police. As I speak I don’t know what has happened to them.
