Police Chase ‘Bishop’ For Demolishing Woman’s House

The leader and founder of the Miraculous Jesus Evangelistic Ministry International, Bishop Columbus Appiah, is being sought after by the Tafo-Pankrono Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service in Kumasi for allegedly demolishing an eight-bedroom uncompleted house at Atimatim Junction.

This was after a complaint lodged against the bishop by Madam Charity Amponsah, owner of the building.

Madam Amponsah had been served a restraining order by the Kumasi High Court where Bishop Appiah had filed a suit seeking to stop her from developing the said land, but before the writ was served on her, he was alleged to have master-minded the demolition of the house.

According to the woman, she received the writ last Monday, November 2, 2015 and expressed shock that the bishop could take the law into his hands and cause such damage when the case had been sent to the court.

Bishop Appiah is alleged to have taken a group of young men led by one K Marfo on Friday to pull down the eight-bedroom uncompleted property, sited on Plot 37B at the Atimatim Junction, which has been the subject of litigation between the him and Madam Amponsah.

Marfo and his team demolished the building and cut all the iron rods used for the pillars and beams of the building and took them away.

Madam Amponsah then led the Pankrono police to arrest Marfo on Saturday after getting wind of the destruction of her property.

When contacted, the Tafo-Pankrono Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Emmanuel Amissah, confirmed that a complaint had been lodged with the command and Marfo arrested but was released on police enquiry bail the next day.
