Ashanti Regional Minister arrests pastor for making noise

Church members gathered at the police station demanding the release of their pastor

Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Simon Osei Mensah, has this dawn stormed the premises of House of Bethel Ministry at Anwomaso in Kumasi of the Asanti Regional, with armed policemen to arrest the head pastor of the church.

According to Kwabena Frimpong Manso of Atinka Media Village, the action came after the Minister had complained severally that the pastor's Watch Night service is preventing him from sleeping, hence the arrest.

The head pastor, Rev Kwame Takyi was arrested at about 12:50am and has since been put behind bars at the Tech police station assisting the police with investigations.

The Watch Night service was halted abruptly as a result of the arrest, and the church members as at 6:12am on Saturday have been left stranded at the Tech Police Station demanding the immediate release of their pastor.
