He made the made the call on Thursday during a courtesy call to the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, as a sign of his appreciation for his timely call for the ‘attackers’ to be brought to book.

The youth, numbering about a dozen and believed to be from the Moslem community, were ostensibly angered by a prophecy by the pastor that the Chief Imam will die this year.

They stormed the South Odorkor branch Rev Owusu Bempah’s church and destroyed property.

But after condemning the act, the Chief Imam called for the arrest of four of the youth and asked the Moslem community to forgive the man of God.

According to him, Islam stands for peace: “We are living in peace with fellow Christians and other religion so let’s maintain that relationship. Leave him with his character and forgive him. As for death, every soul shall taste it either today or tomorrow so no need to attack the man. Please leave him and forgive him, I am begging you, I am begging you.”

Rev Owusu Bempah’s visit to the Chief Imam on Thursday is a gesture to smoke the peace pipe.
