Four children have been burnt to death in Amasaman, a suburb in Accra after their mother locked them up to attend an all-night service.
The sad incident happened on Wednesday, 28th October 2020 dawn at Fise a town near Amasaman in the Ga North Municipality in the Greater Accra Region.
The blaze broke out in a four-bedroom house they were sleeping in killing them.
The mother, name given as Prophetess Adelaide Nkrumah of Yahweh Revelation Sabbath Ministry, locked them up in a room to attend a half-night prayer meeting with her last born.
