The Head pastor of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, who is very close to the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has been arrested with three of his church members.
Two others are said to be on the run during the arrest on Sunday 12 September 2021, a police statement said.
The pastor and the church members, according to the police statement, allegedly attacked police officers at the church premises.
The statement said the suspects would be arraigned in court on Monday 13 September.
“The suspects are being detained for further investigations over the creation and circulation of multiple videos containing threats, the brandishing of a weapon and the assault of some police personnel,” the statement said.
In a video gone viral, the preacher was seen with men, some of whom wielded guns, at the home of converted fetish priestess Nana Agradaa threatening her to step out of her room if she was brave enough.
Even though it is not immediately clear the motivation for his action, some sources say, the pastor and his men went to the home of the converted fetish priestess after she dared him to come near her for a lesson.
