The founder and leader of International God’s Way Church (IGWC), Bishop Daniel Kwadwo Obinim has reacted to the Ghanaian pastor who killed his wife saga.
According to him, there is no way a man will kill his wife after wasting a lot of money to marry her.
He advised Ghanaians not to jump to any conclusion without knowing the true side of the story and what might have led the pastor to do so.
“Who wish death for a woman he has wasted a lot of money to marry” he said
He further condemned the act, Obinim advised pastors to also go in for counselling from professionals when they are troubled.
Pastor Obinim advised his junior pastors who were also a panelist of his television programme not to see themselves beyond counselling as the general principle of counselling states that everybody needs counselling.
Although there have been reports of him having been physically abusive in the marriage, it is unclear what triggered the pastor to murder his wife on that day.
On a very sad note, A Ghanaian pastor who is based in Florida went this extra mile to do the unthinkable and this has caught many Ghanaians thinking as to what actually transpired that led Pastor who goes by the name Pastor Sylvester to go that extra mile.
General Overseer of Floodgates of Heaven International Ministries, Pastor Sylvester Ofori, and his better-half Madam Barabara Tommey lived happily after until the unfortunate happened and death was the last resort Pastor Sylvester wished for.
Since news broke of the incident, there has been a lot of reports over what might have led to the killing.
A video of the suspect threatening to kill the deceased in the presence of her family members surfaced.
In the video the suspect was in a heated argument with his brother-in-law who advised his sister to file a police report.
Some few days after that video, a sister of the deceased, Barbara Tommey, says her brother-in-law, Sylvester Ofori, at a point in his ministry backslid into occultism and wanted to usher her sister into it but it did not work.
Sophia Tommey who spoke on Kofi TV, stated that, about two years ago, her late sister, Barbara realised that her husband, Sylvester, who is a pastor had joined some occultic group so she decided to move out of the marriage.
She explained that Sylvester visited Ghana after he got married to her sister. And in the company of Sylvester’s two friends David and Suzy, “we followed him to the mountains to pray. When we came back from the mountains, Sylvester told me he needs to establish a branch of his church here in Ghana so he will be visiting one of his pastor friends in Nzema”.
She explained that when Sylvester returned from his Nzema trip, he told her that they met one “powerful” pastor who was doing all kinds of incantations, adding that after Sylvester left Ghana with his friends back to the US, he returned again secretly and went back to Nzema again to meet the “powerful” pastor for the second time.
“Sylvester had denounced God after he visited Nzema and was given a book to read. He then gave the book to my sister to read and after reading, she was also showing signs of denouncing God to follow the husband but she [Barbara] later recovered through prayers. My sister later discovered her husband had joined an occult group and filed for divorce,” Sophia Tommey narrated.
She explained that Barbara had moved out from her matrimonial home in the immediate three months leading up to the shooting incident, but only returned to the house on Sunday, September 6, for some documents when Sylvester nearly choked her to death.
