The founder of Anointed Chapel Palace International, Reverend Francis Antwi alias Obofour has told police officers that he was in the spiritual realm when he asked a member of a church to smoke a substance suspected to be narcotics in the presence of the congregation.
According to Obofour in a statement to the police, he was in the spiritual realm and as such did not even see someone smoking during his deliverance service.
Rev. Obofour claims he was possessed by the Holy Spirit and it was the Holy Spirit who ordered the young man to smoke the wee during the deliverance service and not him.
Rev Obofour on Thursday [October 31, 2019] was invited by the Accra Regional Police Command following a directive by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr James Oppong-Boanuh after a video of the “wee deliverance” went viral and generated public discussion.
In a bid to deliver the said church member of an evil spirit during a church service, Rev Obofour made him smoke the substance.
During the service, Rev. Obofour asked if anyone in the Church auditorium had marijuana [wee], and a man elected to step forward and produced a small box, which he claimed contained one roll of wee.
Obofour called a man with marijuana in his pocket and ordered him to smoke at the church. He went on to deliver the person of the weed-smoking spirit that possesses him after he was done smoking.
Following a public outcry after the video hit online, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. James Oppong-Boanuh ordered Obofour to be invited and questioned.
Meanwhile, the young man who was ordered to smoke the weed is now claiming he was hird by Obofour prior to the church program to appear in the church with weed and follow all the instructions Obofour will give him for a fee.
