News about the alleged arrest of Bishop ‘Angel’ Daniel Obinim, the leader of International God’s Way Church went viral last night.
Even though as of now he is not in the custody of the police because he took ill as soon as the police arrived at his church in Accra to pick him, it is reported that some officers of the police service are standing by his bed to take him in as soon as he gets better.
The consistent trolls his alleged arrest is receiving on social media has seen a reaction from legendary sound engineer/producer Fred Kyei Mensah popularly known as Fredyma.
Taking to his Facebook page, Fredyma gave a series of scenarios to advise people laughing at Bishop Obinim to be mindful since it can be anybody in the same situation he finds himself.
He also indicated that under the laws of natural justice, Ghanaians should be slow with their judgement and give the man of God a fair hearing.

SOMEONE KNOWS(OBINIM)NO ONE KNOWS(OBINIM), NYAME BEKYERE.
I said some few days ago about how we are using social media to hate others and it manifested yesterday on some people’s posts immediately they heard that “somebody knows and nobody knows” was arrested.
They were so happy as if when you are arrested, you are found guilty and the rest of your life is held in solitary confinement. The world is not ending today.
Allegations have been made by some people concerning the activities of a Pastor. He’s come out to admit in the case of infidelity which is a moral issue and has apologized. All the other allegations about fraud, money laundering, murder,gold dealings etc,are still under investigations.
It is the courts and the level of evidence adduced against him that can send him to jail and not the manipulations of a personal vendetta against him.
There has been great leaders in this world both past and present who have tasted prison life because of what they stood for. Haven’t we heard of people being convicted for wrong reasons and later the sentence being revoked?
I am not holding brief for him on some level of allegations thrown at him but under the laws of natural justice, he should be given a fair hearing and not to be condemned and found guilty by the court of public opinion.
Whatever transpires in this seemingly long battle to exonerate himself, i have the confidence that he would sail through peacefully. He’s the most vilified pastor in Ghana. Sometimes, i blame “someone knows”also for always allowing emotions to take over him when situations arise. He should sit down and decipher before he comes out to banter and listen to good counsel from others. He should adapt to changes in his church activities moving on.
Let the music play on. Sini awieyɛ na yɛbɛ hunu kyaley.
