Simultaneously, the Ghana Police Service launched an investigation upon viewing the viral video, leading to the tracking and subsequent arrest of the suspect.

A statement issued by Apostle James Kwabena Asare, the Kasoa Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, addressed the incident, stating: “One incident occurred (healing of the blind man) which turned out to be fake. The supposed blind man has turned out to be an alleged criminal who has caused a lot of atrocities and has been hiding from facing the law. He has now been exposed and handed over to the Police.”

Furthermore, the statement urged members of the church to refrain from discussing or sharing information about the fabricated miracle on social media platforms.

Nonetheless, Apostle Asare also emphasized the importance of obtaining permission from the Area media committee before disseminating any information related to the church on social media platforms, in an effort to prevent similar incidents in the future.
