The Tafo-Pankrono Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service in Kumasi are on the heels of the leader and founder of the Miraculous Jesus Evangelistic Ministry International, Bishop Columbus Appiah, for allegedly demolishing an eight-bedroom uncompleted house at Atimatim Junction.
Bishop Columbus Appiah wanted for demolishing woman’s house
According to Madam Amponsah, she received the writ last Monday, November 2, 2015 and expressed shock that the bishop could take the law into his hands and cause such damage.
This followed a complaint lodged against the bishop by Madam Charity Amponsah, owner of the building.
Bishop Appiah had filed a suit at the Kumasi High Court seeking an order restraining Madam Amponsah from developing the said land, but before the writ was served on her, he was alleged to have master-minded the demolition of the house.
The eight-bedroom uncompleted building, sited on Plot 37B at the Atimatim Junction, which has been the subject of litigation between the bishop and Madam Amponsah, was last Friday, October 30, 2015 pulled down by aides to the man of God, led by someone identified as K. Marfo.
Marfo was said to have led a team to the place to demolish the building after which they allegedly cut all the iron rods used for the pillars and beams of the building and took them away.
When Madam Amponsah got wind of the demolition, she lodged a complaint with the Pankrono Police, which led to the arrest of Marfo last Saturday.
A source at the Pankrono Police Station confirmed to the Daily Graphic that Marfo was arrested but released on police enquiry bail the next day.
When contacted, the Tafo-Pankrono Divisional Commander, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr Emmanuel Amissah, confirmed that a complaint had been lodged with the command.
However, he declined to make further comments, saying “I have just been briefed and I am yet to study the case.”
