Mensa Otabil condemns attack on Owusu-Bempah’s church


General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church, Dr Mensa Otabil has condemned the attack on Rev Isaac Owusu-Bempah’s church.

A statement released by ICGC reveals that Dr Mensa Otabil is of the view that “violence must never be used to settle our differences as Ghanaians under any circumstances”.

The statement is in reaction to an attack by irate Muslim youth on the Glorious Word Ministry Wednesday afternoon after Rev Owusu-Bempah’s prophecy that the Chief Imam will die this year.

This was part of other death prophecies the prophet gave during the 31st December watch night service in his church on Monday.

The International Central Gospel Church in its statement also sort to clarify that Dr Otabil’s comment against death prophecies which has been reported in the media was neither made recently nor directed at Rev Owusu-Bempah as many think.

Dr Otabil made those comments during the church’s 34th Anniversary on 4th March 2018.

“While the thoughts expressed in the video clearly reflect his perspective on the subject matter, pitting the two together as was done in the publication creates an unfortunate impression that Pastor Otabil’s comments were directly targeted at Rev Owusu-Bempah,” the statement added.
