The three others are Michael Boateng, Frederick Ohene, and Nathaniel Agyekum.
The four were arrested for the “creation and circulation of multiple videos containing threats, and the brandishing of a weapon and the assault of some police personnel”.
According to a statement issued by the police on Sunday, September 12, 2021, and signed by its acting Director of Public Affairs, ACOP Kwesi Ofori, Reverend Owusu Bempah and the three other suspects were arrested “after critically analyzing the said videos and based on intelligence gathered”.
And Osofo Kyiri Abosom who is also the founder of the Life Assembly Worship Center has said he will rejoice when Reverend Owusu Bempah is put to jail.

“Owusu Bempah is not a true man of God and his behavior confirms every allegation put across against him, he reiterated.
Meanwhile, Reverend Owusu Bempah and the other three suspects were were denied bail by court on September 13, 2021 and have been put on remand for a period of seven days.
