There is evidence connecting Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah’s arrest and handcuffing at the Police Hospital and Cantonments Police Station to a prophet’s birthday celebration who had a grudge against the man of God.

According to reports, a competing pastor and the personal prophet of the Inspector General of Police, Rev. Owusu Bempah, was being held hostage at the time of Rev. Kusi Boateng’s arrest and detention. Rev. Boateng was reportedly celebrating his birthday at the time.


Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and the IGP himself attended the celebration, but they all partied instead of answering the call of the man of God.

According to rumors, Rev. Kusi Boateng used the Jubilee to backbite his way to political favors and prophesied to anybody who would listen. He purportedly foretold Dampare’s nomination as IGP and urged President Akufo-Addo to carry it out.

Rev. Owusu Bempah and Rev. Kusi Boateng grew enmities after the latter replaced the former in the NPP’s zones of influence.


According to Rev. Owusu Bempah, the IGP, who has come under fire for using discretion in his policing, may have detained him with the help of Kusi Boateng and Bawumia. The IGP has additionally been criticized for using social media to garner publicity without doing any job.

Rev. Owusu Bempah said he contacted Kusi Boateng multiple times without getting a response on Sunday, sharing facts of his imprisonment and other information he later learned.

“When I was sent to the Cantonment Police cells, I called everyone I knew but no responded. One official told me and I narrated everything to him. The official told me Dampare and Vice President were in the house of Reverend Kusi Boateng. It was Kusi Boateng’s birthday so they were in his house. The person told me the only person who could intervene in my case was Reverend Kusi Boateng.


“He is also the only one who can speak to Bawumia and Dampare to help me. The person sent me Kusi Boateng’s number and I called him more than ten times but he never answered. The police came and said it was time for me to be sent to the cells so I should undress” he said.
