Pray To Incapacitate Macho Men -DCOP Kofi Boakye Tells Pastors

THE ASHANTI Regional Police Commander, DCOP Nathan Kofi Boakye has implored ‘loud mouth’ Pastors and Men of God in the country to pray against the activities of macho men and hoodlums ahead of the Electoral Commission (EC’s) limited registration exercise and the November 7 elections.

The Ashanti Regional Police Boss said what he demands from the spiritual leaders is for them to pray fervently for peace in the country as Ghanaians confront the crucial elections.

Reacting to false claims by one of the controversial Pastors and Founder of God’s Way International Gospel Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim, that he (DCOP Kofi Boakye) was a member of his church and that he has been offering him spiritual protection, the Regional Police capo stated emphatically he has never been to Bishop Obinim’s Church neither has he asked him for any form of spiritual protection.

He told host of PEACE FM’s Breakfast show, Kwame Sefah Kayi, that instead of engaging in spiritual warfare and supremacy, he rather wishes they could spend their time praying against the activities of macho men who foment  trouble during voters’ registration and elections.

“Kwame, I want to state emphatically that I don’t believe in spiritual prophesies; I only believe in the supreme God. I have never sought any spiritual protection from any pastor, including Bishop Obinim,” DCOP Kofi Boakye, popularly known as Commander One stated.

The Ashanti Regional Police Boss jokingly added “if they have any prayer for me, then I am begging them to pray against macho men so that they can grow lean and render them incapacitated in the upcoming limited registration exercise,”

Though DCOP Kofi Boakye did not deny ever engaging in conversation with Bishop Obinim, he said the purpose was far away from seeking spiritual assistance, explaining that the conversation between them centred on how he and his colleague pastors who oversee larger congregation could help the police in ensuring security in their communities.

He said in the case of Bishop Obinim, the consultation was necessitated by the establishment of a police post at Kenyasi which is close to Bosore where the headquarters of the God’s Way International Gospel Church is located and how he could be of assistance.

“Obinim is not the only pastor I have spoken to in recent times; I have engaged Prophet Ebenezer, Victor Kusi Boateng, Rev. Francis Kwarteng, amongst others and in all those occasions the agenda had been how they can assist the police since they deal with larger congregation. Of course, some of them have been of tremendous assistance to the service,” he explained.
