- A Kumasi high court judge has asked a convicted prisoner to recite the Lord's Prayer
- Justice Wilson wanted the man to recite the prayer so as to free him of his 4-year sentence
- The judge reduced the sentence from 4 years to 3 months
A prisoner at Kumasi convicted of a crime will have to spend four years in jail upon failing to recite the Lord's Prayer.
Owusu Ansah, who was charged with theft, was tried at the Kumasi Circuit Court by a judge who was willing to grant him freedom once he recites the Lord's Prayer without failing.
Unfortunately, the prisoner was unable to recite the pray leaving the judge to describe him as "stupid."
Meanwhile, the high court judge, Justice Wilson, subsequently reduced the jail term of the convict from 4 years to 3 months.
The reason behind the judge's decision to have the convict recite the prayer is yet to be known as reciting the Lord's Prayer is never a requirement for being exonerated of crime.
Also, Starr FM claims that the judge is famous for asking prisoners to either recite the Lord’s Prayer or the national anthem to negotiate their freedom.
