The head pastor of the Glorious Word and Power Ministry, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam on Monday to apologise for the unrest caused by his 31st December prophecies.
The Odokor branch of his church was vandalised last week following his prophecy that the Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr., Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu as well as other prominent figures in the country may die in 2019.
Speaking to the media after the meeting, Rev. Owusu Bempah said he was grateful for the Chief Imam’s understanding.
“I am very thankful. I see that he has shown that he has love for everyone and that fills me with happiness,” the pastor said.
Rev. Owusu Bempah also said he intends to drop charges against the person arrested after men vandalised a branch of his church.
He said he wanted peace and love to prevail.
The Police arrested one person in connection with the attack, who was later granted bail. It is believed the attack was carried out by Muslim men.
Rev. Owusu Bempah said President Nana Akufo-Addo had also spoken to him about the incident at the church and offered some advice.
“[President Akufo-Addo] said he wants peace between Christians and Muslims,” Rev. Owusu Bempah recounted.
He said the president also urged him to replicate the understanding of Chief Iman in dealing with the attack on his church.
“The matter is with the police. Today, because of the Chief Imam and because of God, I want to talk to the police so we can resolve and end this matter… I have spoken to the CID boss and said we should end this matter and take it from police’s hands.”
Rev. Owusu Bempah also expressed gratitude to the Chief Imam for calming tempers at the height of the tensions.
Speaking on behalf of the Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu believes the move is evidence of the cordial relationship between the Muslims and Christians in the country.
