Its getting far more interesting with the detention and criminal charges preferred on the renowned Apostle Dr. Isaac Owusu Bempah, as many of his colleagues in the Christiandom are praying for him to be pardoned and freed. The charges of threat of death and breach of peace are yet to be tried in the court, and this will be after he had served his one week detention period.
It is the third day in police custody, and many of his collegue prophets, even those he had rebuked in the past such as Prophet Nigel Gaisie have thrown his support for him demanding that the state pardons him and get him released. Another call has been made by Archbishop Salifu Amoako, in whose plea wish the state reconsiders the charges against the 'nation's prophet'.
The argument raised by these prophets is that Apostle Dr. Owusu Bempah is a respected figure in Ghana, and deserves to be pardoned in such a circumstance where his utterances which was borne out of Nana Agradaa's persucution, had breached the laws of the land.
The church had issued a statement clarifying issues about how the Apostle Dr. Owusu Bempah and his three deputies were arrested on Sunday. Following which, a campaign has been waged to get Ghanaians, particularly those who sympathize with the embattled prophet, express their support for him while he goes through the process to defend himself in court.
The campaign dubbed; "I stand with Apostle Dr. Isaac Owusu Bempah" has taken waves, and the signatories secured for it is overwhelming. It tells of the love some Ghanaians have for him.
But then, there are still others who wish the law takes its full course. Among the media space, the police is being applauded for not compromising on the matter, and wish this impartiality persist and applies to every other related situation in the country.
It's such a trying time for the church; Glorious Word Power Ministries International, and the prophetic ministries in Ghana as one of their own, whom despite the sacrifices he's made for the governing New Political Party (NPP) and the Presidency, has not been spared from facing the laws squarely.
Today presents a new day for him after spending a night in police cells. It might be his first experience though, his resolve to avail himself to the law is remarkable. Many thought he had faked illness so as to avoid the police cells when he was ordered by the court to be detained for a week awaiting trial.
