An Accra Circuit Court has granted a bail of GHC 10,000 with one surety to the founder of International God’s Way Church founder Bishop Daniel Obinim and two others.

They have been officially charged for causing physical abuse, contrary to section 4 of the Domestic Violence and Victims’ Support Unit (DOVVSU) Act.

The case was adjourned to 24 November 2016.

The controversial pastor who was angered by the couple’s amorous activity which has led to a pregnancy took the law into his hands and lashed the young man on his bare back before turning to the girl flogging her mercilessly with a belt in the full glare of his congregation.

Throughout the punishment, Obinim is heard questioning the jobless youngman why he got the girl pregnant when he has no finances for her upkeep and the upbringing of the unborn child.

The girl who was unable to stand the flogging attempts to escape, but she was held by henchmen of the Bishop to enable the bishop mete out more beatings.

After subjecting the two to severe flogging for several minutes, Obinim orders his junior pastors to remove their belts and subject the couple to more flogging.

The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection reported the act of Obinim to DOVVSU.

In August 2016, the police arrested him over a money doubling scam.
