An Aide to controversial Man of God, Founder and General Overseer of the International Godsway Church Joseph Osei Oppong Brenya, has justified the action by Bishop Daniel Obinim to whip two teenagers, one a pregnant girl during church service.
He disclosed that Obinim took that punitive action to serve as a deterrent to others during prophecy time when he was in the ‘spirit’.
“As a father if your child goes wrong you have to discipline them to serve as a deterrent to others. Impregnating the lady is not the problem but terminating it, which is very bad. And as a man of God he [Obinim] will not tolerate such action in his church or even among his children and that is why he called and punished them to serve as a deterrent to others who will want to engage in things like that.
“He [the boy] bought drugs and gave it to the young lady to terminate the pregnancy; any father on this earth will take that action. The girl nearly lost her life,” he claimed.
Mr Brenya revealed that the Man of God pays their bills and everything they need is provided for by the pastor and their family is aware of this.
According to him, Bishop Obinim is not disturbed about the criticisms from a section of the public.
