Church member beats pastor over church bank account
A member of the Mosama Church International at Sankore in the Brong-Ahafo Region, Agya Osei, has reportedly subjected his head pastor, Bismarck Mensah, to severe beatings for asking him (Osei) to render accounts of the church’s revenue which was in his possession.
The pastor and some elders of the church had reportedly gone to Osei’s house to ask him to render the accounts to them, but he became incensed and without any provocation, allegedly descended on his pastor with the help of his nephew – who was only identified as Kofi.
Rev. Mensah is currently nursing a deep cut he sustained at the lower side of his left eye.
The attack, which was said to have happened on May 3, 2018 at about 8:00 am, was reported to the police and the pastor was later issued with a medical form to attend hospital, sources said.
The Brong-Ahafo Regional Police PRO, Chief Inspector Kinsley Oppong, corroborated the incident to this paper in an interview.
He said Pastor Mensah and his elders took to their heels and later reported the assault on them to the Sankore police, who later arrested and detained Osei and Kofi for questioning.
He claimed that the case is still under investigation after which the suspects will be arraigned before court.
