Prophet Salifu Amoako has pleaded bail for embattled Ghanaian preacher Rev Owusu-Bmepah describing him as a great man of God who is not deserving of spending any of his days in jail.
According to him, the Glorious Word Power Ministries International founder has no criminal record thus should not be kept on remand without bail.
Speaking in his capacity as the Chairman of the National Prophetic and Apostolic Council (NPAAC), Prophet Elisha Salifu Amoako asked the President, the IGP and the court to exercise justice with mercy and allow Rev Owusu-Bempah to out of the confines of the cells on bail.
“The National Prophetic And Apostolic Council (NPAAC) cannot simply sit back and watch what is going on, so as chairman, I have decided to issue a statement regarding Rev. Owusu-arrest. Bempah’s We are not here to fight the system; rather, we are here to ask the IGP, the police, and the court to grant Rev. Owusu-Bempah bail.
“He is a great man of God, and everyone is aware of his influence in the country. But we will be extremely grateful if the court grants him bail so that he can return home and care for himself,”
“NPAAC is here to petition the IGP and the court to grant bail to Rev. Owusu-Bempah. The police are doing their jobs, and the court of law is doing its job, but we will continue to ask the authorities to release him on bail. We are pleading with the President because Rev. Owusu-Bempah has contributed to this country’s elections,” he begged.
“He is a leader and overseer of a large congregation, and he has no criminal record that would allow him to flee the country. “We are pleading with our leaders to assist us in obtaining bail for Rev. Owusu-Bempah,” he insisted.
On Monday, September 13, 2021, Rev Owusu-Bempah and his junior pastors were summoned to court after they were arrested a day before. He pleaded not guilty to charges that included offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, the threat of death, and assault on public officers, and the court ordered him to be held in police custody for a week.
