Owusu-Bempah granted GHC200k bail

The High Court in Accra has granted bail to Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, the founder and general overseer of Glorious Word Ministry International in the sum of GHC200,000.

He is also to produce two sureties aside the bail sum.

This was after his lawyer Garry Nimako moved the bail application before the court presided over by Justice Comfort Tasiame.

Reverend Owusu-Bempah, was on Monday remanded into Police custody by an Accra High Court. He, and four others Mensah Ofori, Michael Boateng, Frederick Ohene and Nathaniel Agyekum were together charged with six counts.

They have all pleaded not guilty to the charges pressed against them for threatening to kill Patricia Oduro Koranteng, popularly known as Nana Agradaa.

While Owusu Bempah and Mensah Ofori were charged with two counts of Offensive Conduct Conducive to the breach of peace and threat of death, the remaining three were also charged with assault on a public officer.

One other person is at large.

Their lawyers led by Lawyer Garry Nimako Marfo prayed for the accused persons to be granted bail, but the prosecution led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey opposed the bail.

It was the case of the prosecution that two of the police officers they assaulted are still on admission at the hospital.

Background

Owusu Bempah was arrested for allegedly storming the home of converted fetish priestess Nana Agradaa.

He was reportedly picked up at his home Sunday evening.

In a video gone viral, the preacher was seen with men, some of whom wielded guns, at the home of Agradaa threatening her to step out of her room if she was brave enough.

Even though it is not immediately clear the motivation for his action, some sources say, the pastor and his men went to the home of the converted fetish priestess after she dared him to come near her for a lesson.

His men reportedly attacked the Police officers who had gone there to effect his arrest.
