The Police have retrieved a gun from the house of Bishop Stephen Akwasi Appiah, alias Jesus Ahuofe – the man of God at the centre of Shatta Wale’s gun attack saga.
Jesus Ahoufe was arrested Tuesday, October 19, 2021, at the premises of Accra FM three weeks after his prophecy that the dancehall musician will be shot dead by assailants on October 18, 2021.
He was arraigned before an Accra Circuit Court on Thursday, October 21, where he pleaded not guilty to the charge of causing fear and panic with his prophecy.

The Circuit Court presided over by Her Honour Mrs Ellen Offei Aryeh remanded him into police custody for police investigations into the case to continue.
In court, counsel for the accused person Martin Kpebu while praying for bail said, his client was unwell.
But, he did not provide any piece of evidence to support his argument. The prosecution led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey opposed the grant of bail.
The court after listening to the parties remanded the accused person into police custody to reappear on Monday, October 25, 2021.
