'We’ll drink your blood if you don’t apologise to us' – Muslim youth to Rev Owusu Bempah

A group of angry Islamic youth have issued a stern warning to Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah to render an apology over his recent doomsday prophecy about the National Chief Imam.

This warning follows an earlier attack on the premises of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International where properties were damaged by the irate machete wielding youth in protest against the prophecy.

The signboard at the church premises, glass windows and other properties in the main auditorium were vandalised in the process.

The Founder of the Glorious Word Power Ministries International, during his 31st watchnight service, prophesied that the Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharunutu will die this year.

Rev Owusu Bempah, also claimed he’s seen revelations that suggest former President John Mahama and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia may die in 2019 and advised them to pray to avert it.

The prophet made several other predictions, including the demise of an ex-president and a former first lady.

These prophecies, particularly the one about the Chief Imam triggered the attack on his church by the Muslim youth who have threatened to deal with Rev Owusu Bempah if he fails to apologise.

In a video circulating on social media, the agitated youth have given the controversial man of God, a 24-hour ultimatum to withdraw his prophecies of doom or experience worst attacks.

The youth led by their well-built ‘spokesperson’ threatened to attack Rev Owusu Bempah and shed his blood if he fails to eat the humble pie and further cautioned him against predicting doom for any member of the Islamic community.

“We’re warning you. You have only 24 hours to capture yourself in a video to apologise to all Muslims. Don’t bring your fake prophecies on the Muslims or our Chief Imam. If you don’t apologise, we’ll drink your blood,” the leader of the group stressed amidst noise from the others.



Forgive him - Chief Imam begs Youth

The National Chief Imam, has, however pleaded with the youth to forgive Rev Owusu Bempah and desist from attacking his church.

Reacting to the incident, he said, "We're living in peace with fellow Christians and other religion so let’s maintain that relationship. Leave him with his character and forgive him. As for death every soul shall taste it either today or tomorrow so no need to attack the man. Please leave him and forgive him, I am begging you, I am begging you."
