A Canada-based Ghanaian pastor, Martin Kofi Danso, has made headlines after it was revealed that he impregnated a member of his church.

Pastor Danso is reported to have impregnated the church member and had wanted to conceal the information after the matter went to court.

According to Thestar.com, Danso asked the court to extend a publication ban and seal order on a court file related to allegations that he fathered a child with former congregant Chris-Ann Bartley.

In a sworn affidavit filed with the court, Danso claimed he had never had intimate relations with Bartley but a DNA test proved that the pastor was really the father of the six-month-old baby.

The judge, Fred Myers of the Ontario Superior Court Justice, thus dismissed Danso's application saying: “That also brings about the possibility of a public interest when somebody’s out there with 17 churches raising charitable money and tells a couple of big, fat whoppers in a sworn affidavit.”

Martin Kofi Danso is the founder of Miracle Arena for All Nations, which operates 17 churches including chapters in Toronto.

He is said married to Reverend JoAnne Danso with whom he has four kids including a set of twins.

He first made the headlines in 2016 when Modernghana.com reported that he had been gifted a private jet by his congregants as a birthday present.
