Obinim Impersonated For Sex
The police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has apprehended a 30-year-old man based in Kpong, near Tema, for allegedly using the name of Bishop Daniel Obinim, General Overseer of the International Godsway Church, to have sexual intercourse with a woman.
In addition, the suspect, Felix Tetteh–Fio, was said to have collected an amount of GH¢4,000 and a Brian Laptop valued at GH¢2,000 from the victim.
He allegedly used the same modus operandi to collect GH¢4,000 from another victim when the police accosted him.
Tetteh-Fio is currently at the CID headquarters assisting in investigation.
Confirming the story to DAILY GUIDE, Chief Superintendent Felix Mawusi, the director of operations at the CID headquarters, said the suspect, from 2015 to 2016, met the complainant (woman) on Facebook and proposed love to her but the complainant declined.
Chief Superintendent Mawusi asserted that Felix Tetteh–Fio, after going through the Facebook wall of the victim, realized that she worshipped at the International Godsway Church headed by Bishop Daniel Obinim.
He was said to have quickly opened another Facebook account with the name Bishop Daniel Obinim, and requested to be a friend to the complainant.
The victim, not knowing it was the suspect who had posed as Bishop Obinim, accepted his friendship request and they started chatting on the social media network.
Tetteh-Fio, posing as Bishop Obinim, asked the woman to accept the proposal of the man who had earlier proposed to her on Facebook because he was to become her future husband.
The victim obliged and became the girlfriend of the suspect, believing that it was the spiritual direction from the man of God.
Felix then took advantage of that to allegedly collect the said amount of money and the Brian Laptop after promising to marry the woman.
In addition, he purportedly had sexual intercourse with the woman – as she believed they were adhering to the ‘prophecy’ of the bishop.
Tetteh –Fio reportedly used the same method to collect an amount of GH¢4,000 from another victim who happened to be the friend of the complainant.
It was when he was maneuvering to have sex with the second victim that the first one reported the matter to the police, leading to his arrest.
Tetteh-Fio was still in police custody assisting in investigations at the time of filing this report.
