Daniel Obinim

The Ghana Police Service has confirmed the arrest of controversial pastor and founder of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim, for publication of false news and forgery of a document.

Police said in a statement that the man of God was arrested on Tuesday May 19, 2020 but could not give any further details of the alleged crime.

The statement which was issued and signed by Director of Public Affairs of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Deputy Superintendent of Police Juliana Obeng said Bishop Obinim is being investigated for other offences.

Media reports were rife that the pastor, who says he has been to heaven, had been arrested by the police following a complaint by Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong.

However, the police said those reports are false.

The Criminal Investigations Department entreated the public to disregard a video circulating on social media on the earlier reports of arrest.

“The video has no relation with the suspect’s arrest on Tuesday May 19, 2020.”

Police say Bishop Obinim was sent to the Magistrate court in Accra and has been granted a ¢100,000 bail with three sureties, one person to be justified.

He will re-appear before court on June 1, 2020.
