Lawyer for Bishop Daniel Obinim has explained the reasons behind an immediate transfer of his client to private doctors following his release.
Counsel, Ralph Poku-Adusei who spoke to the media after the bail of Bishop Obinim explained that the Founder of the International God’s Way was released by the Kaneshie District Court at 3 p.m the same day.
According to him, Bishop Obinim had been held in the police hospital since his arrest because of some health conditions but was not receiving the needed treatment from health personnel at the hospital.
“The hospital conditions were not good so he is currently with his private doctors trying to check his conditions so that he can be back to normal life. He has a cardiovascular disease that has been going on for some time so he has private doctors who have been making sure that he was well catered for, he was not receiving that treatment at the police hospital,” he said.
Lawyer Poku-Adusei further endorsed reports that the police personnel at the headquarters tried to frustrate their efforts to fulfil the bail requirements.
Bishop Obinim was charged for the offence of publication of false news and forging of documents contrary to Sections 208 and 159 of the criminal and other Offences Act, 1060 (Act 29) respectively.
