Pastor, Woman Arrested For Staging Fake Miracle In Church

The suspect, Pastor Jonas Abedi was said to have performed the fake miracle at a church he was visiting for a 2-day revival

A pastor from Ghana was arrested by the police for allegedly hiring a woman to pose as a cripple, deceiving everyone into believing he'd 'healed' her during church service.

35-year-old pastor, Jonas Abedi has been put in police detention with the hired woman, 40-year-old Helena Donkor and three other persons.

According to OMG Ghana, others involved includes Enoch Mortey, 29, who posed as a pastor; Divine Kwadwo Columbus, 36, a self-acclaimed prophet, and Christiana Quainoo, 36, who posed as a sister of the cripple who had brought her to the church for healing.

The suspect, Abedi was said to have performed the fake miracle at a church he was visiting for a 2-day programme.

He was reportedly invited by Ewurama Annan, founder of Power Explosion Chapel at Tantra Hills in Accra after the established contact through Facebook.

Pastor Annan said Abedi, who claimed to be a Ghanaian pastor based in New York in the United States of America (USA), and Rev Annan had been communicating through Facebook for a while.

“In one of their chats, Abedi told Rev Annan that he had been invited by a church in South Africa for a programme and was scheduled to visit Ghana for another programme with a church in Kumasi, after which he would want to pay her a visit,” Mr Acquaye said.
