A Circuit Court in Accra has denied bail to the head pastor of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, and four others.
They were charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, the threat of death, and assault of office public officers.
The Judge, Afia Owusuaa Appiah, said this will allow the police more time to carry out further investigation.
Earlier in court, there was drama when Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah arrived for the hearing.
Some of his church members who accompanied him tried to stop journalists from filming his arrival.
Using insults and jostling, they tried to disperse the media outside the court.
They also tried to stop the media from entering the courtroom, which sparked a confrontation.
Police officers at the premises subsequently denied journalists access into the courtroom.
