Lawyer Kofi Bentil writes: Dear Osofo, IGP hasn’t said don’t prophesy

Must Read

Private legal practitioner and Senior Vice President of IMANI-Africa, Kofi Bentil has schooled some religious leaders on the recent police administration’s directive on 31st December Night prophecies.

This education by the lawyer is in reaction to how some religious leaders have misconstrued the statement to be a ban on prophecies in country.

But in Facebook of Kofi Bentil, he indicated contrary to their assertions, the directive is not a ban on prophecies. However, all purported prophecies must be within the confines of the law.

According to him, if such activities contradict the law, it is no longer a prophesy but a crime which ought to be dealt with according to the laws of the country.

He stated that, “IGP hasn’t said don’t prophesy ooo. Just make sure it is not illegal!!
If it’s illegal it is NOT prophesy it’s crime.”

“If your problem is that your prophesy is potentially illegal then please your Bible says the Spirit of the Proohet is subject to the Prophet so exercise order!! For God is not the author of confusion !!. You cannot have a problem with a caution to do what’s right!,” he added.

 

Ahead of the 31st night vigil, the Ghana Police Service cautioned against prophecies that may cause fear and panic during the watch night services.

The statement signed by the Director of Public Affairs, Supt. Alexander Kwaku Obeng explained that in Ghana, it is a crime to deliberately communicate false or misleading information which is likely to prejudice or disturb public peace when that person has no evidence. Hence, sanctions will be applied to anyone who went contrary to the directive.
