Bishop Daniel Obinim, the founder and leader of International God's Way Church, has finally been released from police custody.
According to a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Ghanaweb.com, Obinim was released on the evening of Friday, May 22, 2020.
His release comes a whole three days after an Accra District Court granted him bail following his arrest on Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
Following his release, Obinim has been rushed to see his private medical doctor, his lawyer, Ralph Poku-Adusei is reported to have confirmed.
"We just received information that he has left police custody. The hospital conditions were not good so he is currently with his private doctors trying to check his conditions so that he can be back to normal life," Poku-Adusei said.
Speaking to earlier concerns by people close to Obinim that the police was frustrating their efforts to get him to out of the cells, Obinim's lawyer affirmed that police had indeed frustrated their efforts.
"The CID came up with all manner of requirements that are needless but eventually we met all the conditions and requirements requested and eventually the bail was executed around 3 pm this afternoon at the Kaneshie court and he has gone home," he said.
As earlier reported by YEN.com.gh, Obinim has been charged with publication of false news and forging of documents contrary to Sections 208 and 159 of the criminal and other Offences Act, 1060 (Act 29) respectively.
