The Vice President of IMANI, Kofi Bentil, has said the Founder and General Overseer of the International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim has not committed a crime by flogging a pregnant girl and her boyfriend during a church service.

According to the legal practitioner, Obinim cannot be charged before the law because the victims involved willingly subjected themselves to his punishment.

The controversial pastor who was angered by the couple’s amorous activity which has led to a pregnancy apparently took the law into his hands and lashed the young man on his bare back before turning to the girl flogging her mercilessly with a belt in the full glare of his congregation.

Many have criticized Obinim for his actions, with human rights groups including Amnesty International calling for his arrest.

But the controversial pastor said he flogged the two, who he argues are under his welfare because they fornicated and tried aborting the pregnancy.

The Gender Ministry has since reported him to the Domestic Victims and Violence Support Unit, (DOVVSU) Office for investigation.

But in a facebook post, Kofi Bentil said: “Bishop Obinim has committed no crime! There’s a principle in law called 'Volenti non fit injuria' google it.It simply means you cannot complain about something you willingly submit to. That is why footballers can’t sue if they are kicked and injured normally during play. They agreed to play, and getting kicked and injured is natural to that sport.”

He added: “by the way, if you are his friend please tell him this....He is digging his own grave by saying the people are his adopted kids.

“That position makes him guilty because the law doesn't allow you to abuse and disgrace your kids! he is better off saying they are just members of his church, that way they cannot complain of something they willingly submitted themselves to!! If you attend that church, you deserve to be whipped!"
