Controversial Ghanaian prophet, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah together with four armed and well-built men stormed the premises of Radio XYZ 93.1, demanding to see host of Inside politics Mugabe Maase.
The prophet threatened to end the life of Mugabe Maase who he claimed called him names on radio. He said the presenter referred to him as a fake pastor which he is not.
At the premises of XYZ broadcasting limited, the radio prophet and his men yelled, pushed and shoved the administrator and some key staff members as he insisted on seeing Mugabe so he will show him.
The founder and leader of The Glorious Word and Power Ministry is currently is expected to be a subject of investigations as former National organiser of the NDC, Kofi Adams has written to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service asking that the self acclaimed prophet be questioned on allegations he made that former president Mahama intends to kill some people including the President Akuffo Addo.
However, Mahama in a statement has rubbished such claims by whom he described as “a politically-tainted founder of a church.”
Below is the full statement:
The attention of former President John Dramani Mahama has been drawn to claims made by a certain Pastor Owusu Bempah on Oman FM on 7thMarch, 2019 accusing the former president of planning to commit a crime.
In direct response to the said accusations, I am directed by Mr. Mahama to state that the claims of the said pastor are false. They remain imaginations of a warped mind and effusions of a politically-tainted founder of a church who would say and do anything to attract attention to himself.
As a known surrogate of the Akufo-Addo government, the said Owusu Bempah’s statements are clearly calculated to distract the attention of the suffering masses of Ghana from the mounting issues of bad governance, corruption, insecurity, hardship and dishonesty.
It is disgraceful that someone who claims to be a prophet of God would readily agree to be used to broadcast lies emanating from a vivid imagination instead of preaching the word of God. Never in the entire account of the bible has there been any anointed prophet of God who only praises a king and turns a blind eye to the evils committed in his reign.
Mr. Mahama would also like to take this opportunity to assure the good people of Ghana that he remains the peaceful, focused, people-loving, and gentle politician that he has always been.
He will not be distracted by the deliberately planned and concocted stories to keep afloat a scandal-mongering campaign against him by the ruling party.
