Founder of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim’s lawyer has revealed that his client has a strange heart condition.
Obinim was arrested and detained in police custody for publication of fake news and forgery of documents contrary to Sections 208 and 159 of the criminal and other Offences Act, 1060 (Act 29) respectively.
The controversial pastor was granted bail of GHC100,000 on May 19 following his arrest, with three sureties. But he remained in custody because he allegedly failed to meet his bail conditions.
Lawyer Ralph Poku-Adusei on Friday May 22, 2020 explained to GhanaWeb that; the Founder of the International God’s Way was released by the Kaneshie District Court at 3pm on Friday. This was after he had met all the stated requirements for the bail.
Poku-Adusei explained that, Obinim was being held in the police hospital after his arrest because of a peculiar heart condition. Unfortunately he didn’t receive the required treatment from health personnel at the facility.
“The hospital conditions were not good so he is currently with his private doctors. They are trying to check his conditions so that he can be back to normal life. He has a peculiar heart condition that has been going on for some time. So he has private doctors who have been making sure that he was well catered for. He was not receiving that treatment at the police hospital.” He said in an interview with GhanaWeb.
Bail requirements frustrations
Lawyer Poku-Adusei further revealed that, the police personnel at the headquarters tried confusing them with the bailing requirements and process.
“The CID came up with all manner of requirements that are needless but eventually we met all the conditions and requirements requested. And eventually the bail was executed around 3pm this afternoon at the Kaneshie court and he has gone home.”
