The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu has caused the arrest of four more attackers of the Leader and Founder of the Glorious Word Ministry, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah.
According to media reports, sources at the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has it that, the suspects have since been admitted bail and are expected to be arraigned before court later this week on various charges.
The police administration has commended him for showing exemplary leadership by exhibiting his abhorrence for violence irrespective of who is involved and allowing the law to take its course.
Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu who had earlier condemned the action of the rampaging youth, appealed to them to forgive the Man of God irrespective of the provocation following his prophecies on New Year’s Eve to the effect he was set to die in 2019.
“We are living in peace with fellow Christians and other religion so let’s maintain that relationship. Leave him with his character and forgive him. As for death every soul shall taste it either today or tomorrow so no need to attack the man. Please leave him and forgive him, I am begging you, I am begging you,” he pleaded.
It would be recalled that some machete-wielding youth numbering about 15 were seen breaking the church billboards at the entrance of the Odorkor Branch and shouting insults at Owusu Bempah in the Hausa language. They vowed to teach him a lesson for “touching their Imam”, brandishing cutlasses as they thronged into the church.
According to them, they will only be appeased when Rev Owusu Bempah goes to apologize to the Chief Imam.
The Leader and Founder of the Glorious Word Ministry incurred the wrath of the public, especially Muslim youth, when he prophesied that the Chief Imam, and current Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia are going to die this year, 2019.
