The religious controversy stirred by the chilling revelations of contrived healings on the part of some leading personalities in Christendom seems unabated and took a rather dramatic turn when several holes began evolving in Pastor Frank Annor’s once too-good-to believe narration.

Ace broadcaster, Kwami Sefa Kayi, host of PEACEFM’s “Kokrokoo”, elicited major discrepancies in Pastor Annor’s tale, raising eyebrows as to whether he was telling the truth.

But Frank Annor, the man in the centre of the religious uproar, whose complaints led to the issuance of an arrest warrant for the General Overseer of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Obinim, in spite of this latest turn of events, still stands by his story.

He alleges that he was contracted by the pastor to bury snakes, candles and bones suspected to be from the human body at the church premises of Prophet Adarkwa Yiadom at Ahenema Kokoben in the Ashanti Region.

Frank Annor, who claims to be a former confidante of the embattled Bishop, General Overseer of International God’s Way Church was unable to clearly answer questions directed at him by Kwami Sefa-Kayi, over his 1 year stay in Belgium, where he claimed to have attended a pastoral course.

“I attended a “school of ministry” in Belgium for a pastoral course… but I cannot readily recall the city or the name of the school,” he said.

Again he claimed to have met Bishop Obinim about a month ago, but contradicted himself when he said the Bishop contracted his services for a nefarious act, which he performed “about two months…no, about one month, two weeks… some six (6) weeks ago!”

Pastor Frank Annor, the complainant, told PEACEFM that Bishop Daniel Obinim sought his services to bury “juju” items at the premises of the Ebenezer Miracle Worship Centre, and also alleged that the Bishop paid him an amount of GH˘4,000 on one occasion and a further GH˘6,000 after the second job was done.

“We met at a hotel at La, where he made available the dead snake, bones and four red candles to be buried at the church premises. The snake was brought in by someone from the Northern Region,” he said.

According to Frank, he was told by the Bishop that when the snake begins to rot, Rev. Adarkwah’s church will start collapsing or a snake will appear in the church during service to “reveal” Rev. Ebenezer Adarkwah Yiadom’s bad deeds.

But his “story” at certain times did not wash.

And Sefa Kayi’s line of probing questions nearly turned a rather serious case into mirth, when Bishop Obinim atypical proclaimed Sefa Kayi as his knight in shining armour, “a Daniel as finally come to judgement,” he said.

“Oh Kwami, you really helped…Kwami, I think God wants to use you to save me from this shameful lies…Though I have retained the help of lawyers given the case to my lawyers, Kwami, you have really solved my case for me on air, I don’t think my counsel could ask such probing and thought-provoking questions…the police should take it up from there,” he hailed Sefa Kayi.
