Florence Obinim pleads with Kennedy Agyapong to drop charges leveled against her husband, Angel Obinim
It is exactly four days that an information reached the media that the Founder and leader of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim, popularly known in the religious fraternity as Angel Obinim rushed to hospital, following an ”arrest warrant” by the court.
The ‘Angel’ is said to have been hospitalised after Police stormed his church on Wednesday to invite him for interrogation at the station.
Confirming his arrest, a journalist from Adom television who was following up on the issue narrated that police had an information that Angel Obinim was counseling some individuals at the Church premise and went there to arrest him for being complicit in an issue before them.
According to him, the Angel demanded to put certain things in order at his office before following the police.
The police men obliged to his plea and excused him for a moment to finish up with what he intended doing.
Upon returning, he began to act absurdly as if he was stricken by a sudden strange ailment and could not stand on his feet.
Due to that, the police men rushed him to an hospital closer to the police station at East Legon called Yeboah hospital for medical treatment.
The Police personnel who could not leave him for him to escape, began “policing” him at the hospital till he recovers for the interrogation.
However, the journalist said one of the young pastors at the man of God’s church denied the arrest, stressing that ‘Obinim’ was inside his room and the reporter could even pay visit with his camera and interview the Angel of God.
The reporter decided to go to Obinim’s house to verify the information, but to his dismay the young Pastor, who is called Pastor Adu called him to inform him that lawyers of Obinim said the pastor could not meet the media so he should return home.
Information he received from the news desk was that Obinim was rushed to Yeboah hospital, so he went to the hospital to confirm.
Upon reaching, the doctor confirmed that Obinim was admitted but failed to disclose the kind of ailment the Angel was suffering from.
The Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong who is the master brain behind Angel’s arrest in a radio interview alleged that the man of God was faking the ailment.
According to him, the “fake pastor” was putting up a charade to swerve jail, which he said would not allow him to escape by faking with a mysterious ailment.
He stated that Angel Obinim was in a special room at the Yeboah hospital, where he always go for his medical treatment.
Mr Agyapong observed that the “fake pastor” arranged to murder him and later spread false information that God eliminated him (Mr Agyapong) for meddling in Obinim’s affair.
“If Obinim has power like how he intimidate people he would have succeeded but could not. He said he prays to heal people, why is he at the hospital receiving treatment?” he queried.
Mr Agyapong urged the public to blame the wife of the pastor and a certain lady who said something to agitate him for Obinim’s jail, adding that “nothing can save him now, not even an ailment.”
The wife who realised that her husband was in a deep mess is reported to be begging the honourable to brush off the issue, in order to set her husband free.
Mr Agyapong replied that nothing could stop him from pursuing the issue, adding that he would pursue it till the laws deal with the “unscrupulous-fake Angel.”
