The parents he said asked Ghanaians not to use their children’s case to exhibit their hatred they have for Bishop Daniel Obinim.
“I’ve personally talked to the parents of the two children. They are telling everyone who wants to take this matter on to rescind their decision because they are their children and they are happy the Bishop has shown them love. How he said he was going to look after the children and parents was not just a word of mouth but he had a brighter future for the children.
What the parents are all saying is that, if some Ghanaians have any hatred for Bishop Obinim, they should not base it on the discipline he has given to the children.
The parents are happy and admit what Angel Obinim has done. This is what the parents have said” Samuel Owusu Asare said.
Bishop Daniel Obinim was seen in a video flogging the pregnant girl and her boyfriend. Infuriated by the couple’s lustful actions which resulted in a pregnancy, Bishop Obinim beat the youngman on his bare back with his belt before turning to the girl flogging her mercilessly in the full glare of his congregation.
During the beating session, Obinim is heard questioning the jobless young man why he got the girl pregnant when he has no finances for her upkeep and the upbringing of the unborn child. The girl who was unable to stand the flogging attempts to escape, but she was held by a right-hand man of the Bishop to enable the bishop to subject her to more beatings.
After that, Obinim instructed his junior pastors to remove their belts and subject the couple to more flogging.
