Pastor Mensa Otabil has been arrested on Friday morning and detained at the Police headquaters in Accra.
Otabil’s arrest comes after the Christian Counsil of Ghana called for the immediate arrest of the man of God.
According to the Police CID, Otabil was picked as result of GHS 60 million Capital Bank’s money that passed through his hands and ended in the mouth.
In a 14-page statement to the Police, Otabil said that money was to perform spiritual sanctification for the dying bank and as such the Bank of Ghana can consult God if anything.
“Why are we questioning God? The money was used to pray for the Bank and it wasn’t even enough. Do you know how much I take for such prayers? Leave me out of this and ask God for the money” – Otabil said in page 9 of the 14-page statement.
Otabil added that he will obey God rather than man and as such would never return the money God directed him to take.
“God directed me to take that money. I can’t disobey him, Go and arrest God” – Otabil ended his statement.
