Obinim's wife trusts God to see him through recent travails

Florence Obinim, the wife of embattled International Gods Way Church founder Daniel Obinim, has sent out words of encouragement to him as he spends a second night in police cells.

In a Facebook post, Florence expressed confidence that God will see her husband through as he fights charges of fraud and assault that have been filed against him.

Quoting 1 Corinthians, she suggested that God would not let her husband deal with what he could not handle.

The passage read:

“No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out so that you can endure it."

"In all circumstances, give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. May the good Lord be with you all," she added.

Her remarks came as Obinim prepared to spend a second night in the cells of the Nima Police Station in Accra, after law enforcement declined to grant him bail.

Hundreds of his church members had converged on the police station to compel officials to release him, but their efforts were futile.

The controversial preacher was arrested for allegedly defrauding a gold dealer of GH¢11.6 million. He also has an assault case pending, after he lashed two teenagers of his church who he said had had premarital sex.

He is now set to be arraigned before court on Thursday.
