Pastor cum politician, Osofo Kyiri Abosom has encouraged the Police to step up surveillance in order to apprehend and prosecute religious leaders who violate the Police Administration’s prohibition on the publication of prophecies
Dozens of self-styled “men of God” in Ghana are anticipated to do what they do best as the year 2021 draws to a conclusion and Christians prepare to herald in the New Year by uttering terrifying prophecies about catastrophe.
The Ghana Police Service has however cautioned them ahead of time that any religious leader who presents a prophesy likely to cause fear and panic to the public without evidence may face a prison term of up to five years.
Well, Osofo Kyiri Abosom, a Ghanaian pastor, has lauded the police’s decision, saying it will restore some sanity to the Christian community and the country as a whole.
The man of God went ahead and proposed a ten-year prison sentence for his colleague preachers who delivers a “false prophesy” on New Year’s Eve, emphasizing that the five-year sentence is very lenient.
“It will let people come out with the truth. We are all going to be watchdogs on this 31st December 2021. Because we need to know those who will come out with the false prophecy. Even when I hear it I will report it.”
