There was drama at the Circuit Court in Accra when the Head pastor of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, arrived for a hearing on Monday, September 13, 2021.
Some of his church members who accompanied him tried to stop journalists from filming the arrival of their spiritual father. They resorted to raining insults on the pressmen as they jostled their way to the courtroom.
Police officers at the court subsequently had to deny journalists access to the courtroom to witness the hearing of the case when the crowd was becoming rowdy.
Owusu Bempah and three others were arrested for the creation and circulation of multiple videos containing threats, and the brandishing of a weapon, and the assault of some police personnel.
The police say they arrested the suspects “after critically analyzing the said videos and based on intelligence gathered”.
In the meantime, two other suspects are said to be on the run and are being pursued.
The injured police personnel is also receiving medical treatment, according to a police statement.
