Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says his mission is to expose fake pastors such as 'Bishop Daniel Obinim and Pastor Emmanuel Badu Kobi, who are taking advantage of innocent souls of God.

According to the Assin Central legislator, he has no intention of targeting churches. Rather the few charlatans who are hiding behind the pulpits while lavishly swimming in wealth must be exposed.

“Why will I target churches, why will I target pastors…not all pastors are fake. There are genuine ones but there are fake ones like Obinim, like Badu Kobi. I can talk about these two people because I’ve done the investigation, and I have a lot of evidence against them,” he said in a recent interview with Joy News.

He continued: “I’m going to take another video of Obinim to EOCO. He was bragging saying that he’s bought property of 166 rooms in America. There is no house in America that has 166 rooms.”

Mr Agyapong further indicated that EOCO could find Obinim culpable because the latter stated in a video that “he transferred the money…” and this will land him into trouble.

When he was asked why he was targeting Obinim, the MP said the man of God threatened to deal with him for a whole year and he [Agyapong] enjoyed that.

“I like people who are bold like that. So, is it a target?” he quizzed.

He noted that due to the comments from the pastor, he sent his missiles. “These young men were going on radio, television insulting me, but I’m focused. I’ve 1001 evidence against him.”

Bishop Daniel Obinim is still in custody after allegedly failing to meet his bail requirements.

He has been charged with the offence of publication of false news and forgery of documents contrary to sections 208 and 159 respectively of the Criminal and other offences Act, (1960; Act 29).

To this, Kennedy Agyapong said, “After the police, EOCO will come in too. I’ve sent the people there; they’ve investigated the transfers. He puts money into people’s accounts and he transfers to spend; that’s money laundering, it’s also coming up. I am not going to rest.”

He explained that, whilst investigating Obinim who owns and is the Head Pastor of the International God’s Way Church, he realised that the latter had done harm to a lot of innocent people in this country and “I have to let Ghanaians know.”
