Lawyer sues Obinim for 'assault'
According Lawyer Sosu, the controversial bishop has violated the dignity of the children.
The controversial pastor who was angered by the couple’s amorous activity which has led to a pregnancy took the law into his hands and lashed the young man on his bare back before turning to the girl flogging her mercilessly with a belt in the full glare of his congregation.
Throughout the punishment, Obinim was heard questioning the jobless young man why he got the girl pregnant when he has no finances for her upkeep and the upbringing of the unborn child.
The girl who was unable to stand the flogging attempts to escape, but she was held by henchmen of the Bishop to enable the bishop mete out more beatings.
After subjecting the two to severe flogging for several minutes, Obinim ordered his junior pastors to remove their belts and subject the couple to more flogging.
In an interview with Accra-based Kasapa FM, Lawyer Sosu said he wants the controversial pastor to answer questions in court for infringing on their human rights.
According him, the controversial bishop has violated the dignity of the children.
“We want the court to make a declaration that the conduct of Obinim in flogging his church members in the open violates their dignity, again that conduct amounts to a dehumanizing and degrading treatment, and also praying the court that Obinim’s conduct violates Ghana’s obligation under the UN convention on the Civil and Political rights of people.
"After that we’ll further pray the court that it restrains Obinim and his church from further violating the rights of Ghanaians in that manner because there are several documentations to the fact that Obinim has violated the rights of some of his church members in the past including stepping on a pregnant women ostensibly healing her,” he said.
