General News of Sunday, 21 August 2016
Police in Tema have given the founder and leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim 24 hours to honour their invitation or they’ll be forced to take action against him.
Their invitation follows public condemnation of a video of the Bishop whipping two of his teenage members before his congregation for fornicating and abortion.
The Gender Ministry has charged the Tema Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) to take over the matter.
But Bishop Obinim is said to have failed to honour their invitation.
In a video which has gone viral on social media, the self-acclaimed Angel is seen whipping a teenage girl and her boyfriend with a belt allegedly for fornicating.
His conduct has been condemned in no uncertain term with some human right lawyers filing a suit against the controversial Bishop.
The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur then reported the matter to the Tema Regional Police.
Based on this, the police on Thursday August 18, 2016 sent an invitation to the Community 9 branch of his church to report himself to the police.
But Bishop Obinim has not honoured the invitation and the police, according to Adom News’ Kwame Yankah might to be forced to effect an arrest if he fails to appear on Monday August 21, 2016.
