The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong says he not against pastors in Ghana as some claim.
Mr Agyapong who has constantly attacked Head Pastor of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim says he on a mission to unveil the harm he has caused people.
He has recently been on Obinim’s case accusing him of forgery among others.
“Not all pastors are fake, there are genuine ones but there are fake ones like Obinim and Badu Kobi, I can talk about these two because I have done an investigation on them. Obinim was bragging about owning a house with 166 rooms, there is no house in America like that. I am not targetting him, he went out to brag that he would put his priesthood aside and deal with me a whole year, I like that, I have thousands of evidence against him, the main reason why I have gotten involved in all this is that in the course of my investigations I realized he has done a lot of harm to people in this country and I have to let Ghanaians know”.
Obinim on Tuesday, May 19, 2020,was arrested and charged with the offences of publication of false news and forging of document contrary to the Criminal and Other Offences Act.
Obinim was subsequently granted bail in the sum of GHS100,000 with three sureties by an Accra Magistrate Court.’
He is still in police custody after failing to meet his bail conditions.
According to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service, Obinim is expected to reappear in court on June 1 while being investigated for other offences levelled against him while.
Obinim has been in the news for the past many weeks due to a consistent media attack by Kennedy Agyapong on him over some alleged illegalities the religious leader has been involved him.
Kennedy Agyapong, through his Net TV and Oman FM platforms, has featured in shows dedicated to ‘exposing’ criminal activities including fraud Obinim is allegedly involved in.
In one of such shows, Kennedy Agyapong played voice recordings reportedly of Mr. Obinim threatening to produce a fake “wanted” notice and attribute it to the police in a bid to frustrate one of his former proteges.
Mr. Agyapong showed the said fake “wanted” notice and vowed to ensure that Obinim is arrested and prosecuted for that and other crimes including money laundering and fraud which he levelled against Obinim.
