Controversial pastor, Rev. Owusu Bempah is being interrogated by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police for prophesying an attempt on the life of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Citi News’ Caleb Kudah, who visited the Police Headquarters to follow up on the development, reported that some pastors and congregants from Hope Ministries International [Owusu Bempah’s church] had “amassed at the main entrance of the CID Headquarters waiting patiently to know the outcome of the interrogation.”
According to Caleb, “Prophet Joshua Eric Amponsah also known as Computer man was also there to show solidarity.”
What did Bempah say?
Owusu Bempah stated that some Ghanaian politicians are scheming to kill the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, before the December 7 general elections.
He said the assassins are plotting to carry out the operation during one of Nana Addo’s campaign tours.
The popular preacher failed to mention names of the suspects but said they would shoot him at a rally.
Rev Bempah made the allegation during an interaction with journalists.
“God has revealed to me that some politicians in a certain political party in Ghana are conspiring with some members of the NPP to shoot Nana dead at a campaign tour. The NPP should not take this as a joke but rather provide tight security around the man,” he said.
Was Bempah wrong?
Speaking in an interview with Citi News’ Caleb, Prophet Joshua said he did not find anything wrong with what Bempah said.
“If the Holy Spirit pushes you to say something there is nothing that can hinder you from saying the truth. I cannot say whether he was right or not. This is purely spiritual so I do not see anything wrong with it.”
Bempah’s other prophecy on Nana Addo
This is not the first time Owusu Bempah has prophesied about Nana Addo ahead of the polls.
In 2015, he stated that Nana Addo will win the 2016 elections.
The Prophet told host of TV show, Restoration, Stacy Amoateng that Ghanaians will give Nana Addo an opportunity to lead the country for the first time, though there might be some challenges.
“Nana Akufo Addo will win the elections, everyone should take note of it but there will be a controversy and that will bring the challenges.People should take note of the date that I made this revelation …Whoever can enter the spiritual realm should do so and verify if what I am saying is the truth.”
