Two out of the three accomplices of Bishop Daniel Obinim, the Head Pastor of the International God’s Way Church who has been slapped with fresh criminal charges in the ongoing forgery trial at the Kaneshie District Court have been identified.
The prosecution and the defense team are therefore cooperating with the police to have the remaining one arrested and put them before the court, the District Court presided over by Her Worship Rosemond Duodua Agyiri was told.
In court on Monday, October 12, 2020, the prosecution led by Sargent Asamoah Richard told the Court that they are working on getting the other accomplice who is at large.
He said the defence is co-operating with them in doing so and once they get them through the right processes, they will be before the court. Dela Blagogy, counsel for Bishop Obinim corroborated the point of prosecution and said they know the whereabouts of two of those at large.
The case has been adjourned to November 16, 2020.
