Apprehension gripped Ghanaians on Wednesday, June 24, 2020, when major parts of Accra experienced earth tremors.
The tremor which happened at about 10:40 pm, occurred three times in the space of 10 minutes. Some residents of Accra New Town, Legon, Dansoman, Kasoa, Haatso, Kwashiman, Teshie, Nungua, McCarthy Hill, Osu, Ablekuma Manhean, Kaneshie, Achimota, Adenta, Circle, Kokomlemle, amongst others said they felt the movement.
Ghanaians took to the microblogging platform, twitter, to express their fears as they asked God for mercy, wondering if the Rapture had taken place and they have been left behind because of their sins.
Well, Nigerians have gone online to mock them, declaring that the earthquake is a spiritual payback to them for demolishing Nigeria’s Embassy in Ghana.
See some hilarious reactions;
“Earthquake in Ghana. A spiritual payback for demolishing Nigeria’s embassy.” – @MustaphaOlatu19
“That Earthquake in Ghana should serve as a warning. Your matter is in the hands of our SANs [Amadioha and Sango]. Touch any building that’s occupied by Nigerians again.” – @Nwafresh
“When you mess with a country that has enough witches and religious “EXPERTS” to fill up one of your state the result can be catastrophic. Y’all are wondering why the earthquake in Ghana happened. Tell dem not to mess up with any nigerian property.” – @pamoramo
“The last most dangerous earthquake in Ghana occurred in June 1936, around 7:30pm, lasted between 20-30 seconds, killing 17 persons and over 135 injured. Before that, in 1862, every major stone building in the Gold Coast was razed down by Earthquake.” – @Sparnkie007
“Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari said Nigeria will not retaliate neither will it engage in any street fight with Ghana, so maybe he took the case to the gods and this happened to Ghana! Lol!” – Fiona Temitope
“Ghana destroyed our embassy We destroyed their land The earthquake in Ghana is just a warning that they shouldn’t fvck with a country that has more Churches/Mosques than industries.” – @iam_MustyK007
“Folks are trivializing earthquake in Ghana. It isn’t unusual for people not to take things too seriously until it hits really hard. The last and most destructive Earthquake in Ghana on 22nd June, 1939. Last night was just a tremor(earthquake wofaase) and it means earthquake can happen in those areas in the nearby future.” – @wafijoe
