The Director-General of State Interests and Governance Authority, Stephen Asamoah Boateng (Asa B) has disclosed that Leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah while in police custody shard the same cell with 70 inmates.
Speaking on Angel FM’s morning show, he said although he doubt the cell is spacious, he believes they were congested in there.
“He is with about 70 inmates at the Cantonments police cells, yes I said 70, even though it’s strange because I doubt Cantonment cell is that spacious, so with this number, I think they’re congested,” he stated.
Owusu Bempah was arrested on Sunday, September 12, together with three other members of his church. On Monday, he was charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, the threat of death, and assault of office public officers.
He has however been granted bail to the tune of GHS200,000 with two sureties by an Accra High court.
