Leader of the International God’s Way Church (IGWC), ‘Angel’ Bishop Daniel Obinim, has described court charges against him for physical abuse of two teenagers during his church service as “senseless”.
“I thought the case was over because I only heard of this issue at court only yesterday. It doesn’t make sense. The prosecutor could have come to a consensus with me off-air to resolve this issue. Taking me to court is not really necessary. I told my lawyer I did not want to involve myself anymore” he said.
Bishop Obinim and two of his pastors, Kingsley Baah and Solomon Abraham were each granted bail Wednesday in the sum of GH¢10,000, with one surety, by an Accra Circuit Court, presided over by Mrs Abena Oppong Adjin-Doku for allegedly abusing two teenagers during a church service.
The Bishop is most upset with the charge of human rights abuse for disciplining his children in public.
“If they say I am sitting on the human rights of the children, I do not think it makes sense because I am not a kid. As an adult, if two kids staying with me, plan to commit murder by abortion, knowing they have engaged in several illegal sexual intercourses, will anyone in Ghana leave them to do it freely” he quizzed.
“I expected the court to warn me not to repeat the gesture in the eyes of the public, but saying I am restricting them (the teenagers) from living their lives, what is really the sense in that?” he said on Accra based radio station.
