- The security man of Rev Owusu Bempah’s church, Robert Missinou, has stated that he needs weapons to protect himself if he needs to continue that job
- He said he would specifically need two guns – a silent pistol and a loud one for warning shoots
- His comments come after some Muslim youths attacked Owusu Bempah’s church following his ‘prophecy’ that the national chief imam would die this year
The security man of the Odorkor branch of Rev. Owusu Bempah’s church, Robert Missinou, has spoken after an attack on the church by some Muslim youths.
He was fortunate to have escaped narrowly, when the angry youth wielding weapons including machete and others stormed the church.
Missinou was captured in a video which went viral running at top speed like Usain Bolt.
Narrating how the incident happened in a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on Citinewsroom.com, Missinou said he never expected such an attack that fateful day.
According to him, he had just finished reading his Bible and prepared to go take his bathe when his sister who was with him informed him that there was a visitor outside for him.
When he came out to see the visitor, the security man said he met the group of people who had stormed the church.
He added that he quickly run inside to lock all gates, but the group jumped the wall into the church premises and started beating him.
He said he would have been dead by now if he was not quick to run for his dear life.
According to him, he survived the attack by grace, however, if the church wants him to continue keeping the security man post, then he must be given weapons.
“But if they want me to stay and do this work, I need weapons – silent pistol and the one for warning shoot. Because if it happens again, I can give warning shoot and if somebody come to me, I can shoot the person’s leg or hand,” Owusu Bempah’s security man said.
Owusu Bempah had claimed that the chief imam was part of his list of public figures to die in the year.
He also mentioned former presidents John Mahama, and John Kufuor and his wife Theresah as part of those going to die.
But the Muslim youth did not take the Chief Imam’s death prophecy kindly and decided to attack Owusu Bempah, asking him to apologise.
In a related development, the imam has urged Muslims to forgive Bempah and not to attack him anymore.
Meanwhile, another pastor called Prophet Solomon has claimed that some Ghanaian pastors will die this year, including a prominent one whose death would shock the whole of Ghana.
