Meanwhile, a famous Ghanaian counselor recently opined that King James bible version is only for transgenders. George Lutterodt cautioned Christians against reading it, insisting that the version is compiled primarily for wrongdoers.
In 2014 Obinim was seen on television stepping on the belly of a woman in a “deliverance” ritual.This led the Amnesty International in Ghana to call for his prosecution for assault. Daniel Obinim has made several public controversial declarations.
He declared he was an angel, which led to the name “Angel Obinim” given to him by his church. He also seemed to have conjured a passport for a church member who lost his. In 2016, he told his church he could transform himself and others into objects and animals. Jon Benjamin, the British High Commissioner to Ghana, ridiculed him for these claims over Twitter.
Obinim in August 2016 publicly flogged two teenagers, one of whom was pregnant, on live television, accusing them of fornicating and conspiring to abort a pregnancy, leading to public outcry, after the video also went viral on social media. Ghana’s Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection Nana Oye Lithur herself led a campaign for his arrest, by lodging a complaint to the Ghana Police Service Domestic Violence and Victims’ Support Unit (DOVVSU). He was subsequently arrested.
