abinimThe lawyer for controversial Ghanaian pastor, Bishop Daniel Obinim, says the arrest of his client was an attempt by elements within government to divert public attention from the remission of Jail term of Montie three.

Samuel Atta Akyea says government wants Ghanaians to look beyond the gaffe it committed when it remitted the four-month custodial sentence of a presenter Salifu Maase and two presenters Alistair Tairo Nelson and Godwin Ako Gunn who were convicted for contempt.

He said the Bishop has not done anything untoward to warrant the treatment meted out to him by the police.

“This is not a common criminal but he was locked up and handcuffed and place before Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times as if this is the most topical issue in the country few hours after the Montie FM has hit the airwave,” he told Francis Abban, host of Joy FM’s Midday News.

After several failed attempt by the police to him help them investigate an incident in which he flogged two church members for allegedly fornicating, Bishop Obinim on Tuesday turned himself in at the Tema Police Command.
