Members of the International God’s Way Church are in for more drama, as Obinim faces illegal connection case with the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in court on September 3.
Controversial founder of the church Bishop Daniel Obinim, has been dragged to court by the ECG, over a GH¢217,000 illegal electricity connection case.
Obinim is facing this most recent illegal connection case with ECG just days after he was granted bail in a GHC11.6 million fraud case.
The Accra East branch of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), is set to take ‘Angel Obinim’ to court, for an illegal power connection.
The controversial pastor is said to have illegally fixed some new post paid electricity meters at his guest house, OB TV premises and his personal residence.
According to the Loss Control Coordinator of the Company, Jonathan Asante, after Obinim’s old meters were blocked for non payment of GHC 27,000 bills, the miracle worker replaced them with new ones.
Also, he said that checks by meter readers on the new meters, between March and August this year, showed an accumulated bill of GH¢217,000.
For this reason, Obinim is expected to face a special court on September 3. Mr. Asante also explained that payment of the old debt is only a recovery of the debt owed, hence does not remove any offender from being punished.
Obinim last week, made headlines after he was alleged to have duped a man to the tune of GHC 11.6million. He was arrested and detained on August 23, after he allegedly reported himself for questioning regarding the flogging of two teenagers in his church.
Though the Bishop maintained he was framed up, he spent two nights in Nima Police Station despite demonstrations by his followers for his release. The controversial pastor was later granted bail with two sureties at the Police headquarters.
