THE police in Kumasi say it has been established that the bones that were buried at Rev Ebenezer Adarkwa-Yiadom’s prayer camp are not human bones but those of a goat.
“They surely belong to a goat,” the Suame Divisional Crime Officer, DSP Kwaku Duah, told the Daily Graphic yesterday.
Consequently, he said, the police could not proceed with any further investigations into the alleged ritual which involved the burying of bones, a dead snake and candles at the prayer camp
Suspicion that the bones were human bones raised a lot of concern among the public when the story about the alleged rituals broke.
One Frank Annor, who described himself as a former confidant of Bishop Daniel Obinim, the Head of the International God’s Way Church, had alleged that the bishop had asked him to perform the ritual at the Rev Ebenezer Adarkwa-Yiadom’s worship grounds for a fee of GH¢4,000.
DSP Duah said Rev Adarkwa-Yiadom was not part of the case in question and, therefore, inviting him to testify was out of the equation.
Meanwhile, Bishop Obinim has stated that he needs prayers to get him out of “the trap” set by his detractors.
Reacting to Annor’s allegations that he (Obinim) had asked him to bury suspected human bones, a dead snake and candles at Rev Adarkwa-Yiadom’s prayer camp, the bishop said the allegation was totally unfounded.
“I can’t fathom why people should be so wicked to put me in this trap,” he said.
Bishop Obinim suspected Rev Adarkwa-Yiadom to be behind all the moves to bring him down but expressed the hope that he would triumph in the end.
He said he did not bear Rev Adarkwa-Yiadom any grudge and that it was Adarkwa-Yiadom who had been casting insinuations at him without any justifiable reason.
“I am working for God so why should someone who is also working for God be my rival?” he asked.
Bishop Obinim was confident that at the end of the day the truth would come out for all to know who was, indeed, the false prophet.
