Embattled religious leader Bishop Daniel Obinim has said he has been framed up in the fraud allegation that led to his arrest.
According to the controversial preacher, who was granted bail a while ago, he had never met, seen or spoken to his accuser until his arrest by the police.
“I have no idea of the young man. I have never set eyes on him before in my entire life. As I looked at him at the police station, I asked myself; how can a young man who has probably never been to school, have that much money to be given to me?
“I know he is just being used to embarrass me as a man of God. But I warn him, he should go and ask about all the people who started picking issues with me and how they ended up. If I am a true man of God, then let my God speak for me. You cannot disgrace me like this and go free, my God will speak and you will all see what will happen to them and their families,” Obinim told an enthusiastic crowd at his residence in Accra after his release from cells.
The controversial pastor was chained at the Police Headquarters over allegation that he defrauded a business man in the sum of GhC¢11.6 million and publicly flogging two of his church members.
Ardent followers of Obinim were bused to the Nima Police Station and the Police Headquarters on Wednesday to demand his release. The irked church members clashed with the police leading to the arrest of a lady. They have vowed to vote against President John Mahama come the December 7 elections.
He was however granted bail Thursday after spending two nights in cells.
Revealed: Why UK freed Nayele Ametefe after serving 3 years of her 8-year jail time
Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.
We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.
Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.
The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.
Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.
The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.
According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.
The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.
In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.
She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.
According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.
The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.
She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
