Prosecutor wants more time in case against ‘Apostle’ who threatened Jean Mensa

An Accra Circuit court has adjourned the case of Apostle Kwabena Owusu Adjei over the prosecutor’s request for more time.

Prosecutor ASP Sylvester Asare pleaded with the court presided over by Mr. Emmanuel Essandoh for more time to investigate the case.

The court adjourned the case to October 19, 2020.

Background

The self-acclaimed pastor, Apostle Kwabena Owusu Agyei, was brought before the Accra Circuit Court after threatening the chairperson of the Electoral Commission (EC), Jean Mensa.

Apostle Owusu Adjei caused a stir when he threatened to kill the EC Chairperson, Jean Mensa if she goes ahead to compile a new voter register for the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

He threatened to stop the compilation of the new register and also threatened that should the EC boss go ahead with the registration, she will die young at midnight, although he did not mention any specific day.

Apostle Owusu Adjei was arrested on June 9, 2020, by some officers of the National Security while he was granting an interview to a journalist from Hot FM.

The General Overseer of the Hezekiah prayer center is facing three counts — the threat of death, unlawful possession of narcotics, and assault on a public officer.

He pleaded not guilty to the counts and his legal team made up of Victor Adawudu and Xavier Sosu prayed the court grant him bail pending the trial.

Mr. Adawudu told the court that per the constitution, the accused is presumed innocent until proven guilty.

The court presided over by Emmanuel Essandoh subsequently granted him a GH¢ 100,000 bail with three sureties, two of whom must be public servants earning not less than GH¢ 2,000 every month.

He is also to report to the police every Monday and Friday.
