I ordered Bishop Obinim’s arrest – Ken Agyapong

Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong says he is the architect behind the arrest of controversial tele-preacher Bishop Obinim.

Bishop Daniel Obinim, the founder of the International God’s Way church, was arrested by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service over the publication of false news and falsification of documents.

According to the police, “He has been charged with the offences of Publication of false news and Forgery of document contrary to sections 208 and 159 of the Criminal and other offences Act, 1960 (ACT 29) respectively”.

Speaking in an interview on Kumasi-based Hello FM, Kennedy Agyapong said he has also “forwarded the issue to EOCO”.

He has however urged Ghanaians to “focus on their work and stop following pastors like Bishop Obinim for spiritual guidance.”

Bishop Obinim was arraigned before a Magistrate’s Court, in Accra, and granted a GHC100,000.00 bail with three sureties – one to be justified.
