The Founder and General overseer of the Anointed Palace Chapel, Reverend Francis Antwi popularly known as Rev. Obofour has described as untrue reports that some members of his church attacked officials of the Tema West Municipal Assembly.
Presenting his side of the story on his social media page, Rev. Obofour denied the attack by his church members.
In the post, he said:
“There has been a video going around on social media, suggesting that some of my church members attacked officials of the Tema West Municipal Assembly. Some media houses did not do a thorough check before reporting the news. I state on authority that none of my members attacked any official from the assembly, it’s all lies.”
Five members of the church were arrested on Monday after they attacked officials at the assembly.
They were apprehended after a police complaint was made by the Assembly at the Sakumono Police Station who took up the matter and arrested the culprits. TDC denies granting a permit for church premise
Meanwhile, the Tema Development Corporation says it has not issued any lease or permit to the Anointed Palace Chapel belonging to Rev Obofour.
According to the corporation, the land on which the church is situated has been declared a flood-prone area, rendering it unsuitable for residential or commercial activities.
Speaking to Citi News, Protocol and Administration officer of TDC, Ian Oquaye said, although the corporation tried to stop the church from being built, it now lies within the mandate of the Tema West Municipal Assembly to determine its fate.
