About five pastors belonging to the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) have began receiving death threats from an unknown individual demanding money from them.

The General Overseer of the Miracle Life Gospel Church, Rev. Gordon Kisseih, who received a similar message on Wednesday at 5:50pm said his life, his family and the lives of 5,000 of his congregation were threatened.

He told Accra-based Joy FM,  the unknown individuals insisted that his refusal to send them some money means his life and that of his family will not be spared.

Rev. Kisseih said he reported the incident to the Police, after which a patrol team was dispatched to the area.

He said the police called the number behind the text message, only for the receiver to respond that he wasn't in Accra but Nsawam.

“The person sent a second threat message after the police had left, saying that not even the police can unravel their network and that his identity cannot be disclosed,” he added.

On why anybody would want to kill him, Rev Kisseih said “That is what evil does. Evil does evil things to good people. When someone meets you in traffic and shoots you for doing nothing, the person is gone away with it; that is evil.”

Other colleague pastors who double as key members of the GPCC; the current General Overseer of the Full Gospel Church International in Tema, Bishop S.N Mensah, and Apostle Anyani Boadu have also received similar death threats messages.

Bishop Mensah said he was in his office at about the same time [5:00 pm] when he saw the message to send money or his family will be killed.

"I called other members of the GPCC only to be told by four others that they have also received the same threat message from the same telephone number," Bishop Mensah added.

Meanwhile, Police in Tema Community 11 have indicated that investigations have began into the matter, adding that residents, pastors and the lives of their families are safe.

She added that the case has been referred to the regional level from the district station.
