Controversial Ghanaian cleric ‘Bishop’ Daniel Obinim, above right, claims that he could have prevented a soldier – Captain Maxwell Mahama, left – from being lynched last week, but received a message on his phone from Jesus telling him not to intervene.
Obinim, of the International God’s Way Church, said that Jesus had Whatsapped him as he was preparing save the soldier, telling him to let matters take their course.
Jesus also stated that those involved in the lynching would know no peace until they die.
About thirteen persons suspected to have been involved in the gruesome murder of the soldier have been arrested. Colleagues of the slain soldier are threatening to strike if they do not get a fair and speedy trial for him. The dead soldier is survived by his wife and two children.
