Lawyer of the embattled founder of the International God’s Way Church Atta Kyea has revealed that Bishop Daniel Obinim has been granted bail.

According to him, Bishop Obinim was granted bail with two sureties for each of the offences for which he was arrested.  It is unclear the bail bond or the amount involved.

Obinim was on Tuesday handcuffed and sent to the National Police Criminal Investigations Department, Accra for allegedly defrauding a man of GHC11.6 million.

Bishop Obinim was said to have demanded the said amount from a man whose name is not known yet and promised to assist him to collect GHC78,000 from a fetish priest, Okomfo Gyakpata.

But according to ASP Joseph Benefo Darkwa, Obinim after taking the GHC 11.6 million from the man failed to help him retrieve his money [GHC78 000] from the Okomfo.
