Rev Owusu Bempah And 6 Others Discharged Over Threats To Kill Nana Agradaa

Leader of Glorious Word Power Ministries International Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah and six others have been discharged by an Accra Circuit Court.

The ‘prophetic’ church leader and others were hauled before the court for threatening to kill Patricia Oduro Koranteng, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, as well as other charges.

The seven accused persons had pleaded not guilty to charges ranging from conspiracy to commit offensive conduct,  breach of peace, conspiracy to commit the crime of death, and the threat of death.

When the case was called on Wednesday, November 30, the prosecution informed the court that the team wanted to withdraw the charges against the accused persons.

The court presided by Evelyn Asamoah then struck out the case and discharged the accused persons.

Meanwhile, the prosecution is expected to file fresh charges at the Accra High Court in the coming days.

Why Rev Owusu Bempah and six others were hauled before the court

The complainant, in this case, is Evangelist Patricia Oduro Koranteng, also known as Nana Agradaa.

On September 9, 2021, at about 5:30 pm, the New Weija Police District Command received a distress call from Godfred Antwi of House number 36, Atta Mills Road, Aplaku, a suburb of Weija that at about 3:30 pm same day, Owusu Bempah in the company of about 45 well-built men besieged the Thunder Plaza at Weija belonging to the complainant, with the intention of attacking her.

The prosecution said since Owusu Bempah and the men did not meet the complainant at her residence, they proceeded to the complainant’s second house at New Aplaku and threatened her with words to wit: “We will kill you.”

The police visited the scene and saw the men holding cutlasses and other offensive weapons against occupants at the house.

Eight vehicles and motorbikes were also parked on the street in front of the complainant’s house.

Per the facts, Owusu Bempah was also seen seated in a black Toyota Land Cruiser instructing and urging the men to move into the house of the complainant and bring her out.

However, the situation was brought under control, and the complainant and Owusu Bempah were then invited to the police station.

But Owusu Bempah reportedly ignored the police and drove off with his men.

The Weija Police Divisional Command officially wrote to Owusu Bempah to report to assist in investigations, but he refused to accept the letter.

On 12 September this year, the police identified some young men, including Mensah Ofori, an Associate Pastor of Owusu Bempah’s church, as two of the people in a viral video threatening the complainant while brandishing a pistol.

Police officers on board Toyota Corolla with registration number NR 9602-20 visited the church of Owusu Bempah to arrest Mensah Ofori.

Another team of policemen in plainclothes also arrested others whose names were only given as Berchie, Boateng, and Ohene and took them to the Dansoman Police Station.

But Owusu Bempah, after spotting the police, ordered his church members to “beat and kill” them.

The prosecution narrated that the church members beat up the officers amidst the firing of gunshots, disarmed the police with two service rifles, and vandalized the police vehicle.

Owusu Bempah is also alleged to have ordered his church members to march to the Dansoman Police Station to free Mensah Ofori, Boateng, and Ohene.

In the process, two policemen got injured.
