Ghanaian pastor has reacted to the recent mobbing death of Captain Adam Mahama, the Ghanaian soldier who was stoned to death and thereafter burnt after he was mistaken for an armed robber.
Controversial pastor, Bishop Daniel Obinim, was the first to react to the death when he said that he wanted to save the army captain, but Jesus Christ warned him (Obinim) through his WhatsApp to desist from doing so.
The WhatsApp is a free messaging app.
Obinim, who leads the International Godsway Church, said he had seen the lynching of Captain Mahama and wanted to “fly to the scene” of the incident to save him, but his “father Jesus Christ” sent him a message on WhatsApp that he “should not distort the happenings.”
In an interview with a Ghana media, Obinim said the captain’s time was due and Jesus needed him to sit with him by his side in heaven.
He, however, cursed that the villagers who lynched Mahama would not know peace till they die.
Obinim is said to have been in and out of Police custody several times for certain allegations. The most recent was said to be the flogging of a pregnant woman in his church.
Menahile, another church leader, Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, founder of the Lighthouse Chapel International, had visited Mahama’s widow to commiserate with his family, myjoyonline stated.
Bishop Mills based his consolation message on 2 Corinthians 1:3 to 4: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction…”
The late Mahama and his family reportedly worshipped at the Cantonment branch of the Lighthouse Chapel International.
