Police arrests Owusu Bempah church assailant

The Ghana Police Service has arrested one suspect in connection with the recent attack on the Odorkor branch of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries International church after the Founder, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah predicted the death of National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu on New Year’s Eve.

Some angry Muslim youth who were not enthused about the pronouncement attacked and vandalised the church on 2 January 2019.

The angry young men, who demanded an unqualified apology to the Muslim community from Rev Owusu Bempah, destroyed the church’s billboards and parts of the building.

Following the arrest, the police said: “The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has taken over the investigation into the case, as the suspect had been granted police inquiry bail on 3 January 2019 to be reporting to the CID headquarters for further investigation”.

The police, on the other hand, warned that such utterances “have the tendency of breaching public peace and causing fear and panic in the country”.

The police, in a statement signed by ACP David Eklu, Director-General of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, on Friday, 4 January 2019, further warned pastors who make death prophecies “to be mindful of the security implications of their utterances”.

The police also entreated the media to be circumspect in the reportage of such prophecies.
