The Glorious Word Power Ministries Iinternational church, has spoken for the first time after the arrest of its leader and founder, Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah.
In a statement release on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, the church among other things clarified some reports about the conduct of Reverend Owusu Bempah before his arrest.

“…The church confirms that there was an altercation outside of the church premises on Sunday 12th September 2021 that got one of our junior pastors manhandled and arrested by some unidentified men. The manner of arrest generated into a scuffle that attracted people in the neighbourhood and the church to the scene.”
The statement also says: “The gunshots by the then unidentified men and the call for help from the neighbourhood caught the attention of Apostle Dr Isaac Owusu-Bempah who halted his ministration at the church and moved out to the scene to get details of what was happening.”
The statement then went on to narrate Owosu- Bempahs’s reaction: “Upon being informed that one of his junior pastors has been arrested, he followed up to the Dansoman Police Station and was later informed that he (Junior Pastor) had been taken to the Greater Accra Regional Police Command, where Apostle Dr Isaac Owusu-Bempah proceeded to.”
