Bishop Obinim arrested and charged for publication of false news and forgery


Bishop Obinim arrested and charged: The founder of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim was arrested by the police earlier today  and charged for publication of false news and forgery of a document contrary to sections 208 and 159 of the Criminal and other offences Act, 1960 (Act 29) respectively.

Police say the controversial pastor was arrested on Tuesday May 19, 2020 but did not give details of the news he is alleged to have published or the forged documents.

They added in a statement that Obinim is also being investigated for other offences leveled against him.

Last week, social media was awash with claims 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.

But according to the police, 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.
