The Liberian government has declared three days of mourning following the death of at least 29 people due to a stampede during a Christian crusade.

The tragic incident occurred in the densely populated Town Ship of New Kru Town, the suburb of Monrovia.  

The crusade was organized on a Sports pitch close to the Atlantic Ocean by renowned prophetic preacher Pastor Abraham Kromah of the Word of Life Outreach Ministries, a Church he built and overseas as its Pastor. 

WADR’s Darlington Porkpa visited the scene of the incident and now reports.
