The founder and leader of Glorious Word Ministry International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah has pointed accusing fingers at the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the recent attack on his church by some angry youth.
According to him, the irate youth were not Muslims as earlier reported but people mobilised by the NDC to vandalise his properties after an assassination attempt on his life failed.
“NDC sent someone from Salaga to assassinate me so I knew those who came to my church even though they were speaking Hausa were not Muslims,” he said on Asempa FM's Ekosii Sen.
A group armed with machetes stormed Rev. Owusu Bempah’s Wednesday after he prophesied that some key leaders in Ghana including the National Chief Imam, Dr. Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharabutu will die 2019.
The group streamed the attack live on Facebook, damaging property and razing to the ground a billboard with Rev Owusu-Bempah’s image.
The youth who threatened to do worse if the man of God fails to apologise rescinded their decision when Chief Imam appealed for calm, saying those incensed by the prophecy should forgive the pastor, who is one of the most charismatic church leaders in Ghana.
But in his reaction on the late afternoon talk show on Friday, Owusu Bempah said he was shocked at the conduct of the Chief Imam.
He showered praises on the revered Imam who in spite of the prophesy demonstrated maturity and appealed for calm among his members.
“Chief Imam shocked me; he didn’t behave like some men of God who condemned me for doing God’s work,” he added.
Owusu Bempah warned the NDC and the pastors conniving to kill him not to bother because he is protected by God.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported that one of the attackers has handed himself to the police.
The suspect who is assisting in investigations reported to the police following a visit to the crime scene by the Accra Region Police Commander.
