“Actually, some few days ago, I was hearing news about the Pastor Mr Owusu Bempah about what he was saying about my father about his sickness that a journalist was going to pass away…which is not true… actually my dad was not feeling well that was the reason he passed away… I don’t believe in what he said because he is not God… I believe it was my father’s time to pass away that’s why God called him,” Mubarak passionately said.
He also urged Ghanaians to dismiss news in the media that says Alhaji Bature slipped in the bathroom and died.
He opined that, initial report from the doctors say his father died of high blood pressure (BP).
“First of all, what I know is my father died of BP…his blood pressure was high…he was admitted at the surgical ward of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for three weeks. Though the post mortem is not out, the doctors told me it’s BP that’s what I know. I believe in the doctors not the pastor. I don’t believe in Owusu Bempah,” he added.
Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah who is the founder of Glorious Word Ministry, on December 31, 2017, during a Watch Night service predicted that a popular journalist in Ghana was going to die if prayers were not offered to avert it.
According to Owusu Bempah, there were plans in the spiritual realm to terminate the life of the said journalist and will materialize if serious prayers were not said to divert them.
The late Alhaji Bature was laid to rest at the Madina Cemetery in Accra on Saturday after he passed on Friday.
