Security Expert, Cephas Kojo Asimadi, says the arrest of self-acclaimed man of God, Prophet Kwabena Owusu, is a step in the right direction.

Prophet Kwabena Owusu Agyei was picked up by the BNI for issuing threats against the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and EC boss, Jean Mensa.

In a video, which has gone viral on social media, the prophet called the President names and issued threats against him.

He added that he would not allow a small family to dictate to the nation.

He alleged that the EC boss, Jean Mensa was planted at the EC for dubious reasons and that she will die if she continues to do the bidding of the NPP, that is go on with the compilation of the voter register.

Prophet Kwabena Owusu was picked up by officials of the BNI in a live interview with a media house at his residence on Tuesday morning.

Speaking to the issue on Atinka FM’s AM Drive with host Ekourba Gyasi, Cephas Kojo Asimadi described the utterances, especially the threats on the EC Boss Jean Mensah, by the supposed man of God as serious and have the tendency to cause fear and panic taking into consideration the fact that the country goes to the polls soon.

According to the security expert, such threats should not be taken lightly at all.

Asked if the mode of arrest was genuine, the expert mentioned that the pastor, per the video, tried to resist arrest and so they had to pick him with a little force.

Prophet Kwabena Owusu Agyei has been charged on three accounts with threat of death, offensive conduct conducive to the breach of peace and possession of narcotics

The case has been adjourned to June 23.
