Information reaching indicates that the leader and founder of the Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, together with two others, have been arrested by the Ghana Police Service.

Reverend Owusu Bempah and the two others were arrested months ago by the police over threat of death on Nana Agradaa’s life.

This new arrest comes after the Circuit Court had released them earlier today.

Prosecutors led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey asked the court to release the defendants (Rev. Owusu Bempah and the two others), signaling that they intend to file fresh charges.

They were quickly arrested after the judge accepted the motion by the Prosecutor.

The fresh charges are expected to be filed by the end of the day.


The popular pastor and the two others; Bright Berchie and Mensah Ofori, have been on trial for months after they were arrested for issuing threats, brandishing weapons and attacking Police officers.

The trio was subsequently granted bail in the sum of ¢200,000 two weeks ago with two sureties each.

The prosecution, on the other hand, has substituted the charges and slapped the defendants with counts of offensive conduct conducive to a breach of peace and the threat of death.

According to the prosecution team, the cases must be separated in order to achieve an efficient and timely trial.

As a result, the Accra High Court gave the clergyman a self-recognizance bail of $100,000, while the two others were granted bail of $100,000 each with two sureties.
