According to the prosecutor, the bail they seek should not be granted them, as two of the police officers they assaulted are still on admission.
The court dismissed the application for bail to allow the prosecution enough time to investigate the case.
The accused persons have been remanded into Police custody to reappear on September 20.
Owusu Bempah arrested
The reports state Owusu Bempah was arrested on Sunday, September 12, 2021, at his church premises at Odorkor.
A post from Facebook user, Listowell Nana Kusi-Poku, indicated that Owusu Bempah had been arrested in connection with an attack on some policemen.
According to Kusi-Poku, some vigilante boys who work for Owusu Bempah had attacked two policemen and disarmed them while they were on duty.
Reason for Owusu Bempah's arrest
Owusu Bempah and Agradaa were close a while ago but have fallen out since the latter's repentance.
The fallout has seen Agradaa and Owusu Bempah throw invectives at each other on social media.
The prophet, in the company of some macho men, stormed the house of Nana Agradaa on Thursday, September 9, 2021.
In videos on social media, Owusu Bempah and his men were seen daring Agradaa to come down and face them.
Later, the 'man of God' explained that he had gone to the house because Agradaa had once claimed that she was going to pounce on him.
