Court slaps pastor who threatened EC boss with GhS100k bail bond

Prophet, Kwabena Owusu Agyei

Apostle Kwabena Owusu, the man who allegedly threatened the life of the chairperson of Ghana’s Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, has been granted a ¢100,000 bail.

The self-styled ‘man of God’ is to provide three sureties, two of whom must be public servants earning not less than GHS 2,000, the Accra High Court ordered.

He is also expected to report to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on Mondays and Fridays.

Apostle Owusu has been in police custody for the past two weeks.

He was picked up early in June while granting a live interview to Accra-based Hot FM for allegedly threatening to kill the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission if she continued with plans to compile a new voters’ register for the 2020 general election.

A search conducted on him upon arrest, according to the facts of the case presented in court, revealed among other things, a black wallet containing GHS29, two suspected aphrodisiac medicine labelled Mr. Q, one pack of brown smoking XL paper, two brown wrapped substance of dried leaves suspected to be narcotic plants.

He has been charged with threat of death, unlawful possession of narcotic plants and assault on a public officer. 

The case has been adjourned to July 12 2020.
