Embattled Head Pastor of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, is back in cells to serve his 1-week remand after reporting sick at the Police Hospital on September 13, 2021, shortly after he and 4 others were remanded.
According to Police sources, Rev. Bempah spent 2 hours at the Police Hospital last night where he was treated and discharged, and taken back to cells.
The popular Reverend Minister, who boasts of his strong relationship with men and women in high places of power in Ghana including the President of the Republic, was charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, the threat of death, and assault of public officers.
He and 4 others were remanded into Police custody by an Accra Circuit Court to reappear on Monday, September 20, 2021, after they spent a day in cells on September 12, 2021.
The Judge, Afia Owusuaa Appiah, said this would allow the Police more time to carry out further investigation.
Earlier in court on Monday, September 13, 2021, there was drama when Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah arrived for the hearing. Some of his Church Members who accompanied him tried to stop journalists from filming his arrival.
Raining insults and jostling, they tried to disperse the media outside the court. They also tried to stop the media from entering the courtroom, which sparked a confrontation.
Police Officers at the premises subsequently denied journalists access into the courtroom.
