The prosecution withdrew the old charges with the explanation that it had consolidated Obinim’s charge sheet with the charge sheet of the other accused persons.

Bishop Obinim was initially standing trial on charges of publication of false news and forgery.

Arrest

Obinim was picked up by the police on an arrest warrant issued by the court on May 19, 2020.

Obinim was sent to the court and was granted bail in the sum of GH¢100,000, with three sureties, one to be justified.

According to the police, Obinim is also under investigation for other offences leveled against him.

Brush with the law

This is not the first time that Obinim has had a brush with the law.

In 2018, he, together with two of his pastors, stood trial at the Accra Circuit Court for allegedly assaulting his adopted children — a 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy — in the presence of his congregation.

They were, in September of that same year, subsequently fined a total of GH¢12,000 for the assault on the two teenagers at a church service held in August 2016.

Again in August 2016, Obinim was arrested by the Tema Regional Police for allegedly defrauding a man of GH¢11.6 million.
