Joy News has intercepted a letter which formed the basis for the arrest of the founder of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim.
The letter was written by K-SAN Law Firm on behalf of the petitioner, Bismark Kusi.
According to the letter, the complainant, Bismark Kusi parted with an amount of GHC780,000.00 to one Okomfo Dzakpata, of Mampong-Nkwanta, near Koforidua, ostensibly to help him (Bismark Kusi) manage proceeds of some family gold. “In our client’s desperation to recover the said amount from Okomfo Dzakpata, he visited Bishop Daniel Kodwo Obinim, a popular charismatic preacher, for assistance.”
But Bishop Obinim has failed to pay back the money, he alleged.
“We are by this letter humbly requesting your office to help Mr. Bismark Kusi recover the said amount from this ‘man of God’” the letter read.
Counsel for the bishop, Atta Akyea, described the letter as “anaemic”. He believes the governing National Democratic Congress it behind the letter which is aimed at disgracing his client and diverting attention from the remission President John Mahama granted the Montie 3.
