The state of the Akyem Batabi Church building before it collapsed
The multi-storey church building belonging to the Church of Prosperity collapsed at Akyem Batabi in the Eastern Region, trapping some worshipers.
The building, prior to its collapse, served as the place of worship for several people in the region and other parts of the country.

Rescuers have since been working to remove persons trapped under the debris.
