Last Sunday a viral video emerged of a purported Man of God casting invectives and curses at the President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo and The chairperson of the Electoral commission Jean Mensa.
In the viral video, the purported Apostle, Kwabena Owusu Agyei, threatened mayhem and slaughter of the President and his Akyem clan.
Speaking to a small group of congregants, Owusu Adjei said “…. today as I hear the word blood flow, it is the blood of the Akyem Mafia that will flow”, alluding to the June 4 Revolution and the subsequent killing of high military command in the Region 1979 June 4 Uprising.
The pastor referred to the overthrow of the president’s father, Edward Akufo-Addo who was president in 1970, and suggested a similar fate would happen to Nana Akufo-Addo.
“There are some people when you give them the power they cannot hold on to it and he is just like his father” he gesticulated violently.
The “pastor” was however arrested by the National Security Service this morning while undertaking an interview with HOT FM.
He was found to be in possession of a substance believed to be marijuana. The wrapped substance was found in his waist bag.
The pastor, who repeatedly called Jean Mensah a foolish girl, was this morning arraigned before court.
The case has been adjourned to June 23, 2020.
The pastor also referred to the overthrow of the president’s father, Edward Akufo-Addo who was president in 1970, and suggested a similar fate would happen to Nana Akufo-Addo.
To the EC boss he warned “If Jean Mensa thinks she was not born of a woman about come from some other angle and do another register, she should go ahead and do the new register” he added.
The Electoral Commission and the opposition National Democratic Congress have locked horns over plans to compile a new voter’s register.
All other political parties have taken sides with the governing New Patriotic Party supporting the EC’s plan.
After several demonstrations against the plan, the opposition NDC has taken the matter to court.
Ghana has barely six months to a general elections and the new voter’s register is yet to be compiled.
Civil society groups, peace council and the national house of chiefs have tried to broker some agreement but to no avail.
