COURT ‘FREES’ OBINIM FROM POLICE CELL.
Controversial Man of God and Founder of the International God’s Way Church Bishop Daniel Obinim can now heave a sigh of relief after being granted bail on Thursday
The bail conditions were not immediately known by ultimatefmonline.com as at press time.
Bishop Obinim who spent two nights in police detention, turned himself to the Tema Police on Tuesday after being declared wanted for his alleged involvement in GH¢ 11.6 million fraud.
Counsel for the accused Atta Akyea claims the arrest of his client is to water down the steam that would hitherto have greeted the remission of the Montie trio by President John Dramani Mahama.
Public Relations Officer of the Police CID ASP Joseph Benefo Darkwa it would be recalled, revealed that a complaint was lodged with the Police in Tema a few weeks ago by a businessman who said he gave an amount of GH¢780,000 to Okomfo Gyapata of Mampong Nkwanta near Koforidua in the Eastern region to do a spiritual ritual to bless the money obtained from a gold deal.
ASP Darkwa narrated that the complainant added after some time, he realised that the Okomfo was not able to help him neither was he able to return his money, so he went to Bishop Obinim to help him retrieve the money and do the rituals to bless the money for him.
ASP Darkwa said it was based on that, that Bishop Obinim asked the businessman to bring the rest of the gold money which amounted to GH¢11.6 million belonging to the family.
The complainant told the police since he gave the money to the Bishop in November last year, Obinim has not been able to do what he was expected to do neither has he given him back his money.
