The Leader of the Lord’s Parliament Chapel, Prophet Francis Amoako-Atta is pleading for the release of Rev. Owusu Bempah following his arrest and subsequent remand into police custody.
An Accra Circuit Court on Monday, September 14, 2021, refused to grant Reverend Owusu Bempah bail, together with three other members of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries.
They were charged with threatening to kill Patricia Oduro Koranteng popularly known as Nana Agradaa.
Prophet Amoako-Atta prayed the court, presided by Ms. Afia Owusu Appiah, to release the accused for he [Bempah] has learnt his lesson.
“I am on bended knees, on behalf of the nation, hoping that as he [Bempah] has taken ill, he would be set free. I know this is a country where the rule of law is functional”
According to the prophet the law has taken its course but justice should be tampered with mercy.
“I am appealing to the magistrate, the judge that when Paul was incarcerated, he was released the following day and so I was praying that the Lord would fulfill the scriptures this time again and let Owusu Bempah’s case be the same. I am appealing to the judge from the top to down lets tamper justice with mercy”.
Rev. Amoako-Atta believes that Rev. Owusu Bempah took what was supposed to be a spiritual battle on a light note hence his current predicament.
To him, Owusu Bempah’s situation is only a manifestation of what has transpired in the spirit realm. He opined that the action of Nana Agradaa putting the picture of Owusu Bempah in the water closet was a symbolic representation of his imprisonment however, this would not be the end for Owusu Bempah.
“Anytime you fail, it causes you pain and that pain would make you accept your mistakes. And from there it causes you to grow more. Let all the children of Bempah to note that this can be a catalyst for his [Bempah] coming back to be greater than his previous achievements”
