Rev Owusu Bempah who was arrested on Sunday, September 12, was in handcuffs and under the strict surveillance of the Ghana Police at the hospital as required by law.

On Monday, September 13, 2021, the man of God and the three others before were arraigned before the Accra Circuit Court 5 on four counts of offensive conduct conducive to breach of peace, the threat of death, and assault of office of public officers.

Gary Nimako Marfo Esq. who is the lawyer for the accused prayed the court to grant his clients bail but was met with opposition from the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey arguing that the defendants needed to be remanded to facilitate ongoing investigations. 

The court presided over by Afia Owusuaa Appiah (Js) after hearing both sides denied Reverend Owusu Bempah and the three other accused bail and noting that they needed to be remanded to aid the Police investigations.

She, therefore, ruled that they be remanded in Police custody for one week. The case has been adjourned to Monday, September 20, 2021.
