The founder and leader of the Heavens Gate Ministry, Nicholas Osei, popularly known as Kumchacha, and several other prophets in Accra visited the police headquarters in Accra to solidarise with Bishop Daniel Obinim.
“Kumchacha is known to be someone who has been fighting for and defending men of God in Ghana accused of various wrongdoings…God has given me the gift of intercession and I always intercede for men of God and Christians who go into trouble…we are on our way to the place,” the prophet told Accra-based Adom FM before setting off.
It comes after the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service detained the founder of the International God’s Way Church on Tuesday, for allegedly defrauding an unnamed man of GH¢11.6 million.
Obinim was grabbed by the CID at Domestic Violence and Victims’ Support Unit of the Ghana Police Service in Tema where he had heeded an invitation for him to appear for beating two teenage members of his Church.
Police sources say Obinim demanded the GH¢11.6 million from the man and promised to assist him (the man) to retrieve GH¢780,000 from a fetish priest who had defrauded him.
However, a month after he made the money available to the Obinim, the Bishop did not retrieve the money from the fetish priest neither did he return the GH¢11.6 million.
The development prompted him to file a complaint with the police, leading to Obinim’s arrest.
The controversial pastor would spend Tuesday in police custody and face interrogation on Wednesday.
