The Ghana Police Service has sent a strong warning to prophets who publicly spell doom on people especially celebrities in the country without evidence.

According to Alexander Kweku Obeng, Director of Public Affairs at the Ghana Police Service, such acts are against the laws of Ghana and prophets who engage in such activities will be made to face the law.

“The law is against false publication thereby if you make your prophesy publicly without any evidence then you’ve breached the law and the law will deal with you.

“ Alexander Kweku Obeng cautioned pastors who embark on the same tangent as Jesus Ahuofe and noted that it was wrong to openly prophesy about someone to cause fear and panic.

He said anyone who decided to defy this directive was on his or her own and the law was going to be activated.

Alexander Kweku Obeng said this in an interview on Accra-based Peace FM on Monday, October 25, 2021.

He, therefore, advised pastors and celebrities to be law-abiding citizens since the law is no respecter of any person.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) has extended an invitation to Religious bodies and faith-based organisations today October 25, 2021, at the Police Headquarters.
