It looks like something is about to be done about the founder and General Overseer of the International God’s Way Church, Angel Bishop Daniel Obinim’s long enjoyed shenanigans and insane methods.
Earlier today, a video emerged of Obinim whipping two of his church members, a man and a woman–because the woman got pregnant, by the man.
Obinim’s people have explained that the man of God who is the father of church is commanded by “Proverbs 13:24″ to use the rod to discipline his children, the congregation.
Now, Ghana’s Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection has filed a police report against Bishop Daniel Obinim, over the church flogging incident.
Nana Oye Lithur, a human rights lawyer and the sector Minister announced on her Facebook page that her ministry has filed the report at the Accra Regional Domestic Violence and Victim Support Unit (DOVVSU) Office for investigations to be conducted into the incident.
She wrote: “We have been informed; that the Police have commenced investigations into the matter and a complaint has also been filed against him at the Tema Regional Police. We will keep you posted on further developments.”
Already, the director of Amnesty International in Ghana, Lawrence Amesu, has categorically condemned the actions of Bishop Daniel Obinim.
Speaking on 3Fm, Amesu said the Bishop’s actions should be roundly condemned, and that he has to be arrested for his conduct.
“…For Amnesty International, we think that Bishop Obinim is going beyond his jurisdiction at this time. This is a criminal offence [and] he should be arrested by the Police.” Amesu said.
“So it is up to us now, at this time to come together to put more pressure on the police to arrest Bishop Obimim” he added.
For his part, aides of the bishop say he was justified in his actions as the bible says “Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them.”
