The man of God in the center of the controversies over Shatta Wale’s arrest, in 2021 following a prophecy has been acquitted and discharged by an Accra Circuit court.
The head pastor of New Life Kingdom Chapel International, Stephen Akwasi Appiah, also known as Jesus Ahuofe had been standing trial following his death Prophecy brouhaha against dancehall artist Shatta Wale.
The pastor was arrested at the premises of Accra-based Accra FM on Tuesday, 19 October 2021 over a prophecy he made about Shatta Wale that the musician was going to be murdered.
Jesus Ahuofe prophesied is on record to have said on 28 September 2021 that a popular dancehall artiste called Charles would be shot dead on 18 October 2021 just as Lucky Dube was shot dead in South Africa.
To that effect, barely a month after the prophecy, he was arrested after Shatta Wale, and two others staged a fake gun attack on the same date the pastor said in his prophecy.
Shatta Wale and the two others, Kojo Owusu Koranteng, also known as Nana Dope, and Eric Venator, alias Gangee, were also arrested for publication of false information intended to cause fear and panic.
Jesus Ahuofe was also charged for causing fear and panic to which he pleaded not guilty.
But nearing one year after the incident, the Man of God has finally been discharged and acquitted.
