Vivian Appiah, the wife of Bishop Stephen Akwasi Appiah aka Jesus Ahoufe, has confirmed the police has found a weapon at their home following her husband's arrest on October 19.
Jesus Ahoufe was arrested over his doom prophecy about Shatta Wale.
Speaking on Accra FM on September 28, the preacher revealed that the dancehall musician would be shot on October 18, 2021, as he called for prayers to prevent it.
The founder and leader of Newlife Kingdom Chapel International has since been kept in custody and denied bail as Shatta Wale claims his prophecy forced him to stage his shooting stunt.

Wife of Jesus Ahoufe speaks
Vivian Appiah, wife of Bishop Stephen Akwasi Appiah aka Jesus Ahoufe, told Citi TV the police sneaked her husband to search their home, where they found the registered gun.
"We were all here my husband was here with us, so we were back and forth with the crime officer and he said we should calm down and they would grant him bail tonight so we were all hoping that tonight we will get bail," she recalled.
''I was sitting in front of my car and one of my sons said Mummy they are taking Daddy away and I said to where? So I took my phone and called him and said they are taking him home ... so I stayed here with some church members.''
Vivian Appiah confirmed the police found the gun after they searched their home.
''I don't know what they were looking for, but when they went inside my house, all I know is that they have searched everywhere and saw my husband's registered gun".
According to her, the police brought the gun to the Accra Regional Police Command. Her husband has been denied bail and is set to re-appear in court on October 25, 2021.
