The co-Chairman of the National Prophetic and Apostolic Council, Archbishop Elisha Salifu Amoako has made a passionate appeal for the release of embattled founder and leader of Glorious Word Power Ministry, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah from police custody.
Speaking to the press on behalf of the association, a day after his colleague was handed a week remand sentence by an Accra Circuit Court, the founder and leader of Alive Chapel International pleaded with the court to grant Reverend Owusu Bempah bail on health grounds.
“As an organisation, we cannot just be quiet and continue to watch what is going on. As a chairman, I’ve decided to make a statement. We are not trying to fight the system; we are just here to plead. We are pleading to the IGP, we are pleading to the police and we are also pleading to the court. We are just pleading for a bail for Reverend Dr. Isaac Owusu Bempah, he is a great man of God. We all know his impact in this country, he is so great.
“I believe that if the court grants him bail because of health issues we would be so grateful to the court. We would be so grateful to the court for granting him bail to come and take care of his health. Investigations are still going on so we cannot just be quiet and sit down to watch what is going on. As for us, we are pleading to the court that if they can grant him bail for him to go home and prepare for the court we will be so happy. So our plea is simple, NPAG is just here to plead,” the Chairman said.
Bishop Amoako further pleaded to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to intervene in securing bail for Rev. Owusu Bempah while assuring that NPAC will ensure he adheres to his bail condition.
Archbishop Salifu Amoako and Reverend Isaac Owusu Bemah are co-chairpersons of the National Prophetic and Charismatic Council (NPAC) Ghana.
Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah was arrested together with three of his junior pastors on Sunday, September 14, 2021.
The arrest of Owusu Bempah came after a series of confrontations between him and repented fetish priestess, Nana Agradaa now known as Evangelist Patricia Oduro Koranteng.
A day after some junior pastors of Reverend Owusu Bempah were seen in a viral video brandishing guns and threatening to deal with Agradaa, the pastor and a group of men trooped to her residence to confront her.
Agradaa however failed to face up to Owusu Bempah but chose to stand on the balcony of her building leaving the pastor and his troop stranded at her gate.
Following the incident and the brandishing of weapons that characterized the storming of Agradaa’s residence, the Ghana Police Service picked up the Reverend Owusu Bempah and his junior pastors and put them before a court on Monday.
His plea for bail was rejected by the court which handed him a one-week remand.
He was reportedly rushed to the police hospital after his health deteriorated when he was taken into police custody from court.
He has however been treated and discharged and is currently back in custody.
