Obinim Charged With Assault; Transferred To Police HQ

The controversial founder of the International God’s Way Church Bishop Daniel Obinim has been charged with physical and verbal assault after he turned himself in to the Tema police station.

The divisive pastor has been transferred to the Police headquarters in Accra from the Tema Police station for further questioning after his congregants massed up at the Police station.

One of his associate has also been charged with abetement of crime, according to A reporter Wilberforce Asare.

Bishop Obinim honoured the invitation by the police in connection with investigations into reports that he publicly flogged two young adults of his church for allegedly indulging in fornication.

The alleged fornication is said to have resulted in a pregnancy that was aborted by the young adults.

The flogging is said to have been captured and broadcast on the church’s TV channel and later went viral on social media.

Following the release of the footage on social media and the subsequent public condemnation, the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Nana Oye Lithur, reported Bishop Obinim to the Accra Regional Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVSSU), while another person also lodged a complaint against the bishop at the Tema Regional Police.

A private legal practitioner, Lawyer Francis Xavier Sosu, has also dragged Bishop Obinim to court for flogging the two.

Lawyer Sosu is seeking an order from the Human Rights Division of the Accra High Court that would protect what he described as the fundamental human rights of members of Bishop Obinim’s church.
