“After critically analyzing the said videos and based on intelligence gathered, the police embarked on an operation today Sunday, September 12, 2021, at the premises of the church to arrest the suspects,” portions of the police statement read.
The statement further added that “during the operation, some members of the church, believed to have been under the direction of Reverend Bempah assaulted some police officers”, parts of the statement read.
