Two mobile preachers were seen on Wednesday at the Kumasi Central Market in the Ashanti region of Ghana entertaining passers-by in a mortal combat over religious service offertory.
According to reports across social media, the self-acclaimed men of God converted the market into a boxing arena on December 20, ripping each other’s clothes in the process.
Reports indicate that the two mobile preachers simply identified as Evangelist Samuel Kwame Boateng and Evangelist Kwame Poku, have been engaging in verbal assaults frequently over religious service offertory from passersby but the situation degenerated into a public fisticuff on Wednesday.
Samuel Kwame Boateng who spoke in an interview after the clash said his colleague preacher has been insulting; issuing threats and makes attempts to attack him physically.
He said he was then advised by one of the women at the market to beat his colleague preacher to serve as a deterrent hence his actions which rather degenerated into a fight which onlookers described as shameful.
