On Wednesday, November 9, 2016 , the controversial Bishop was charged alongside two of his aides for committing physical abuse and abetment, after he was captured in a video that went viral flogging his teenage members in church for having premarital sex which led to the girl getting pregnant.
Speaking recently with Adom Online in an interview, the bishop said he expected the prosecutor to have come to a consensus with him to resolve the issue off-air.
'I thought the case was over. It doesn’t make sense. The prosecutor could have come to a consensus with me off-air to resolve this issue,taking me to court is not really necessary. I told my lawyer I did not want to involve myself anymore, I expected the court to warn me not to repeat the gesture in the eyes of the public, but saying I am restricting them (the teenagers) from living their lives, what is really the sense in that?'Bishop Obinim and two of his aides, Kingsley Baah and Solomon Abraham who were all granted bail of GHS10,000 each with one surety to be justified, will reappear at the Accra Circuit court on Thursday, November 24, 2016, for further hearing on the case.
