Father of popular televangelist and prophet, Bishop Daniel Obinim, has died in Kumasi, the capital city of the Ashanti Region.
Kojo Bonsu, popularly known in the Ashanti Region as Agya Bonsu, the biological father of Bishop Obinim died Friday 9 April 2021, in Bosome, a suburb of Kumasi, Asaaseradio.com can report.
Sources within Bishop Obinim’s family indicate that his late father was rushed to the hospital where he died after he complained of feeling feverish. Agya Bonsu’s actual age is not yet known but he is believed to be in his late 70s.
Bishop Obinim father’s name first popped up in the media when outspoken NPP MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, revealed that his stepfather who sponsored his education in Germany, was a blood relations of Agya Bonsu.
Popularly called Angel Obinim, Daniel is the senior bishop of International God’s Way Church. The controversial bishop declared himself an angel of God and in 2016 he told his church he could transform himself and others into objects and animals.
As part of his antics, Obinim was seen on television stepping on the belly of a woman as part of a “deliverance” session in 2014. This led Amnesty International in Ghana to call for his prosecution for assault. Obinim in August 2016 publicly flogged two teenagers, one of whom was pregnant, on live television, accusing them of fornicating and conspiring to abort a pregnancy, leading to public outcry, after the video also went viral on social media.
