The Founder and Leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim is still in police cells despite being granted bail by a court of competent jurisdiction.
The man of God who has been the subject of attacks by Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP) was arrested and charged for engaging in a gold scam.
According to a statement from the Police, Angel Obinim as he is referred to by his church members was charged with forgery of false documents and publication of false news contrary to sections 208 and 159 of the criminal offences Act 1960 (Act 29) which he used against one of his former junior pastors.
The trial judge, Rosemond Agyire granted the bail when the Lawyer of Obinim, Raphael Opoku Adusei told the court his client is innocent and not fit as he was admitted at the hospital last week.
He was subsequently granted GH¢100,000 with three sureties, one to be justified which left him in the police custody as at last night.
Ken Agyapong had alleged that Angel Obinim used the insignia of the Ghana Police Service illegally to declare one of his junior pastors allegedly stealing his money which was meant to be transferred to Spain to purchase some instruments.
Three days after being granted bail, Angel Obinim is still languishing in Police cells.
The Legislator speaking on Net 2 programme, the seat monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com revealed the man of God is still in cells because he has failed to meet the bail conditions.
“No Pastor is ready to go and use his properties as sureties for Obinim that is why he is still in jail…three days are you are still there despite being granted bail…,” Ken Agyapong said on the show.
He further said that ‘no one is ready to bail Obinim because they don’t trust him’.
“If it had been me, Ken Agyapong, some people I do not know from anywhere would have come to my aid and just pay the bail sum and use his money as surety because of my good deeds…,” he added.
To him, the controversial man of God will still face further punishment from the security agencies signaling that he was going to report him to EOCO.
