The Founder and Leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim has sued traditional priest, Okomfo Yaw Appiah for defamation.

According to Bishop Obinim, Okomfo Appiah will be served the suit by end of Wednesday.

"My lawyers have compiled all the audio recordings from all his interviews and are ready to meet at the law courts...I am hinting him that we are coming to serve him," he is quoted by adomonline.com to have said on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem.

After months of dabbling in a well-aired tirade on radio, Bishop Daniel Obinim and Okomfo Yaw Appiah agreed on Boss FM to face off on Tuesday noon at Kumasi Jubilee Park (Jackson Park) for a spiritual battle.

However, to the disappointment of the many who had trooped the park to witness the duo face off, Okomfo Yaw Appiah was noticeably absent.

Bishop Obinim consequently declared himself winner of the contest which attracted thousands of people.

The priest has however blamed the police for his inability to go to the venue. According to him, he had been held under house arrest by the Suame Police, making him unable to show up at the event.

He had alleged that he bestowed on Obinim the spiritual powers he uses and stressed that he was a fraudulent character.

It would be recalled that Bishop Obinim also at one point failed to show up at the studios of Accra-based Happy FM, where the two were expected to meet for a similar battle.

Meanwhile the Ashanti Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Mohammed Tanko has told Pulse.com.gh that Okomfo Yaw Appiah was not under house arrest; rather he was held in protective custody.

According to ASP Tanko, the police had information that scores of Bishop Obinim’s supporters had planned to invade and attack Okomfo Yaw’s residence.

“Supporters of Bishop Obinim were going to invade the fetish priest’s house and attack him so we sent the men there to prevent that from happening’, he said.
