Rev. Owusu Bempah’s trial resumes today

The General Overseer of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, will later this morning reappear in court.

The controversial pastor and four others are standing trial for attacking and assaulting police officers.

The High court in Accra last week granted him, and four others bail to the tune of GHS 200,000 with two sureties each after they were remanded to police custody on their first appearance in court.

They were arrested for the creation and circulation of multiple videos containing threats, and the brandishing of a weapon as well as assault on some police personnel.

They were subsequently charged with offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, threat of death, and assault of public officers.

Rev. Bempah had previously been denied bail by a Circuit Court in Accra and was set to be in custody for a week, but was later granted bail by a High Court.

This was after he reported sick and was sent to the Police Hospital on Monday following his remand.

He spent two hours at the Police Hospital before being discharged.
