"I know he is just being used to embarrass me as a man of God. But I warn him, he should go and ask about all the people who started picking issues with me and how they ended up. If I am a true man of God, then let my God speak for me. You cannot disgrace me like this and go free, my God will speak and you will all see what will happen to them and their families," Obinim told a mob that had gathered to celebrate his release for holding an enthusiastic crowd at his residence in Accra after his release from cells.
