The incident took place during a service that was done to install Pastor Akan as a "Bishop" and rumors have made rounds suggesting that church leaders went ahead with the installation that same day after the tragedy.
However, Pastor Akan has rebuffed the stories.
"Please, this is not the time to crucify me; I’m still your brother. Reigners Church family, I’m still your pastor. The enthronement was cancelled completely and I am not interested.
"Please let us rise and pray. I really sympathise with the departed soul. Once I’m out of my hospital bed, I will come on air and we will pray together…"
