Popular controversial Ghanaian pastor, Bishop Daniel Obinim has been arrested.
Recall that the man of God and founder of the International God’s Way Church sparked outrage after video of him flogging a pregnant young lady and her partner in the church hit the internet. Well, that's not the reason why he was arrested. He was arrested, escorted in handcuffs and transferred to the Accra Police Headquarters after being interrogated over a GH¢11.6 million fraud case.
Ghana Media reports that the police had invited the pastor and had given him 24 hour ultimatum to honour their invitation over the fraud case. He yielded to the invitation yesterday. The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) PRO, ASP Joseph Darkwa, said a complainant came to the Tema Police some few weeks ago to report that he told Bishop Obinim to help him do some rituals to bless a huge amount of money. He said Obinim asked him to bring the gold money which amounted to GH¢11.6 million belonging to the family...so that the blessing ritual can be done on time. The complaint told the police since he gave the money to the Bishop, he has not been able to do what he was expected to do neither was he given his money. The complainant said he gave the money to Bishop Obinim June this year.
