The Founder and leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah, has reportedly been eating humble pie following his arrest and detention over his death threats to a colleague spiritualist.
Owusu Bempah, who made name for himself as President Akufo-Addo’s spiritual consultant and prophetic godfather, has been begging IGP George Akuffo Dampare, to forgive him of any grudge that he holds against him.
He is said to have told a confidant, speculated to be a personal aide called Charles Owusu, to convey to the IGP his plea for mercy while he was on a sickbed at the Police Hospital where he had been rushed after allegedly taking ill in Police cells.
“Tell Dampare to forgive me if I have said or done anything to offend him,” he is quoted to have said.
The plea is said to have come from the cleric whose special services to President Akufo-Addo as a political prophet had made him arguably, the most powerful spiritualist in Ghana.
On Sunday, September 12, 2021, Rev. Owusu Bempah was arrested for allegedly issuing death threats on former fetish priest, Nana Agradaa, and storming her house with three others, armed with guns.
The Police have alleged that when they later went to arrest Owusu Bempah at his church, they were attacked by some of his church members at the behest of the controversial man of God.
In spite of all these, however, it was generally expected that Owusu Bempah would quickly be released because of his relationship with the President, however, suspiciously, the Police arraigned him before court and the court remanded him on Monday.
Shortly after the ruling, reports emerged that Akufo-Addo’s prophet had suddenly taken ill and been rushed to the Police hospital and that at the hospital, the man had been treated shabbily like a criminal.
He had been handcuffed to his bed while a sentry of heavily armed Police officers stood guard.
It was while he was going through the shocking treatment that he reportedly asked that somebody go and beg IGP Dampare to forgive him any grudge that he holds against him.
Meanwhile, the notorious preacher has been granted bail from his week-long remand after much pressure from the high-ups, Whatsup News gathered.
It is not clear who granted him the bail but earlier, an Accra Circuit court had refused him the bail on grounds that there was the need for the prosecution to conclude investigations.
