Kojo Bonsu, the father of popular televangelist Bishop Daniel Obinim has died in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, Dailymailgh.com gathers.
Believed to be in his late 70s, Bonsu, popularly called Agya Bonsu in the Ashanti Region reportedly died at the hospital on Friday 9 April 2021 in Bosome, a suburb of Kumasi, reports Asaaseradio.com.
Bishop Obinim father’s name first popped up in the media when outspoken NPP MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, revealed that his stepfather who sponsored his education in Germany, was a blood relations of Agya Bonsu.
Popularly called Angel Obinim, Daniel is the senior bishop of International God’s Way Church. The controversial bishop declared himself an angel of God and in 2016 he told his church he could transform himself and others into objects and animals.
As part of his antics, Obinim was seen on television stepping on the belly of a woman as part of a “deliverance” session in 2014.
This led Amnesty International in Ghana to call for his prosecution for assault. Obinim in August 2016 publicly flogged two teenagers, one of whom was pregnant, on live television, accusing them of fornicating and conspiring to abort a pregnancy, leading to public outcry, after the video also went viral on social media.
