The Ghana Police Service is reminding the general public especially members of the religious community to comply with the laws regarding prophecy as 31st Watch Night approaches.
In a statement dated 27th December 2022, the Police Service indicated that a year ago it drew the attention of the general public, especially the religious community to the law regarding the communication of Prophecy after some religious groups and leaders made some prophecies which caused fear and panic.
According to the Police, the awareness created exactly a year ago has attributed greatly to creating an environment where people can freely profess their faith without unnecessary anxiety and fear of impending harm or death.
The police also added that, as 2022 also draws to a close, they entreat the general public especially faith-based religious groups to ensure continuous compliance with the law.
“Ghana is indeed grateful to religious leaders in particular and the religious community as a whole for their prophetic understanding of the situation”, the statement indicated.
The Ghana Police Service also commended religious groups for their cooperation by being conscious of the law and adopting legally acceptable means of communicating prophecies.
The statement further reminded individuals and religious groups that whereas there is the right to practice one’s faith in religion, freedom of worship and speech, this right must not be exercised in violation of the right of others.
