Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly has sued the Organizer of the Spiritual Contest between Founder and Leader of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim and Fetish priest by name Okomfo Yaw Appiah before a Kumasi High Court for allegedly not obtaining Permit to use Jubilee Park for the event.
KMA said the organizer of the Spiritual Contest, who is also a radio presenter of Boss FM by name Bawuah Abesiriwa didn’t request for permit to use the Kumasi Jubilee Park.
On Monday evening, Bishop Obinim and Okomfo Appiah came into consensus on Boss FM in Kumasi when Koo Bawuah Abesiriwa hosted the man of God and the fetish priest. The two after several minutes of arguing on phone agreed to meet Tuesday noon for the clash.
Obinim ordered the 41-year-old fetish priest to come along with a coffin because he won’t leave the event ground alive. The fetish priest also asked the man of God to do as he has ordered.
The terms of the contest was that the loser will be buried in a coffin and made to rest in peace.
The alleged spiritual father of Bishop Obinim, Okomfo Yaw Appiah, warned his alleged spiritual son to be wary of his utterances and mannerisms.
Bishop Obinim was heard on a tape recording, a couple of days ago, throwing a challenge to the priest to meet him on a common ground where they will both exhibit their spiritual prowess to the awe of a large crowd.
Per the rules of the ‘contest’, Obinim and Nana Appiah were to lie in the coffin for 30 minutes, in addition to other rituals that would be performed, to determine the one who would survive and who was superior.
Obinim told the crowd that he was daring the priest to show up in the coming days or he would be compelled to storm his (priest’s) residence to prove a point.
But in a radio interview later, Komfo Nana Appiah said he was prevented by the police from showing up at the grounds because the contest could be ‘bloody’.
He told GhanaCrusader.com: “I am not afraid of Obinim and I am ready to face him anytime and expose him.”
