General Overseer of the Prophet Hill Chapel, Prophet Nigel Gaisie, says he is saddened by the arrest and detention of colleague Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah.
According to him, the Founder of the Glorius Word Chapel International is not being treated fairly, adding he is not in a good place.
“I am saddened by the issue and will appeal to the court to temper justice with mercy. First, where he was arrested was not the right place and now he has been remanded,” he said on Accra-based Okay FM.
Rev. Bempah, who has been charged with threat of life for allegedly threatening to kill Nana Agraada, as well as offensive conduct to the breach of peace, made his first appearance before the Accra Circuit Court on Monday, along with five other members of the church.
The other five were also refused bail.
Rev. Bempah and his co-accused church members were taken to court amidst a heavily armed police escort.
Presenting their case, the accused persons pleaded not guilty to all charges.
Their legal counsel, led by Gary Nimako Marfo, prayed the court for his clients to be granted bail.
