The Criminal Investigations Department has revealed plans to launch investigations into allegations levelled against some pastors by politician, Kennedy Agyapong.
Public Relations Officer for the CID in Accra, DSP Juliana Obeng, told GhanaWeb on Thursday, June 18, 2020, that the Department is also considering suggestions for police protection for the Assin Central Member of Parliament.
Mr Agyapong weeks ago started a campaign about supposed fake pastors by taking on the Head Pastor of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim and broadcasting videotapes he said are evidence of the pastor’s double life and criminal activities.
Some of Mr Agyapong’s revelations have resulted in a charge of the publication of false news and forgery of documents contrary to sections 208 and 159 of the Criminal and other offences Act, (1960) (ACT 29) respectively against Mr Bishop Daniel Obinim.
Obinim was remanded briefly but has since been released on bail.
Recently, Mr Agyapong has taken on the leader of the Prophet Hill Chapel, Prophet Nigel Gaisie, claiming he has evidence to prove some of his prophecies are fake.
DSP Juliana Obeng told GhanaWeb that she has not been cleared to comment on the specific allegations by Mr Agyapong and how they affect the CID’s work, however, she promised that they are of interest to the CID.
