Eight more charges have been brought against Founder and Leader of God's Way International Ministry who is in court for allegedly assaulting two journalists at Accra-based Hot FM.

Bishop Obinim, noted for his infamous attack on the station, appeared before an Accra High Court on Friday, in the company of two of his associate Pastors, Kingsley Baah and Kofi Akwettey.

The court, presided over by Justice Abdullah Iddrisu, charged them for an unlawful entry into the radio station with the intent to commit crime and destroy properties belonging to the station.

The Bishop and his two accomplices were also charged for unlawfully and intentionally using a 'crowbar' to assault the Presenter of a show dubbed "Nya Asem Hwe" on Hot FM. On the third count, they were further charged for assaulting the producer of the show, Shedrack Adu, including a panelist Reverend Amoako Atta and also causing harm and citing him (Shedrack Adu) to anger.

They are also to pay for the items they destroyed, worth GHC 138,050.

The accused persons however pleaded not guilty to the charges and have been granted bail by the Police to a tune of GHC 10000 each with one surety, Hot FM's reporter said.

Narrating the incident to Peacefmonline.com, Hot FM's Joseph Oppong stated that Prosecutor, Joyce Debrah told the court that Bishop Obinim was informed by his wife, Florence Obinim, that he was being discussed on the programme "Nya Asem Hwe."

Following up on his wife's message, the Bishop stormed the station with a crowbar together with his Junior Pastors and smashed the glasses and studios of the station, where he also assaulted the Presenter, Producer and the panel member.

The case has been adjourned to November 6, 2013.
