Provide evidence for doom prophecies to avoid arrest – Police caution prophets

The Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Samuel Kwesi Ofori has revealed doom prophecies must henceforth come with evidence. 

He says prophets who refuse to back their doom prophecies with evidence will be arrested for causing fear and panic.

He added the prophecy, even when given to an individual in a church, can cause the arrest of the prophet if the individual feels threatened and reports to the police.

Speaking with Captain Smart on Onua TV/FM’s ‘Maakye’ Tuesday, October 26, 2021, the police PRO said other activities such as “unnecessary noise making that are inimical to the rights and liberties of the individual” would all necessitate arrest.

“Those doing death prophesies must provide evidence.”

“The death prophecies can cause fear and panic and threaten the security of the individual and family,” he said whilst Ghanasonline.com monitored.

He explained the service “are not going to be on the neck of the churches but unnecessary noise making, death prophecies, and others are what we are saying should be done well. We shouldn’t use religion to infringe on other’s rights.”

Mr. Kwesi Ofori said several clips on social media from some religious homes drew the attention of the IGP and the police administration to sanitise the system.

“Some clips you see people being whipped in churches. The police administration and IGP have agreed to sanitise the system from some of these things. The churches must ensure to abide by the laws of the country.”

He noted that was the reason the police administration met with the leadership of the religious bodies to sensitise them on how to clean the system.

“We will continue with the sensitisation occasionally to ensure we all learn well,” he added.

Meanwhile, good prophecies, according to the police mouthpiece would not cause any arrest since they don’t create any fear and panic.
