Tragic! Pupil burnt to death during prayers for EXAM Success


An 18-year-old final-year secondary school student in Ghana who was bent on passing the ongoing WASSCE, in one sitting had died after she got burnt during prayers at a local church to help her succeed, according to reports.
The victim, Efua Asantewaa, a student of Mozano Senior High School, located in the Central Region of Portia Donkor, had accompanied her mother for the said prayer when Efua Eguama, the Prophetess and leader of the Church-African Faith Church, Breman Bedum poured oil on her
She is said to have lit a candle and given to the girl to hold as part of the fortification process to help her pass the WASSCE exams.
Unfortunately, the cloths on the student caught fire in the process, causing her to suffer severe burns.
18-year-old Efua Asantewaa had to be sent to the Breman Asikuma hospital as the fire could not be readily quenched. She was later transferred to the Korle Bu Teaching hospital where she passed on.
Ghana police have since arrested the said prophetess and she would be arraigned before a court on Monday on the provisional charge of murder.
Starr News’ Central regional correspondent Kwaku Baah-Acheamfour says the Breman Asikuma District Police Commander ASP Emmanuel Donkor Baah confirmed the story to them.
