Bench warrant out for arrest of Apostle Ebenezer Boahene

The Tarkwa Circuit Court has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Apostle Ebenezer Boahene, Chairman of the Christian Divine Church (CDC).

The Head of the church is being charged for non-payment of Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) contributions of his pastors between 2021 and 2023.

The total of this unpaid SSNIT contributions ran into over a GH¢100,000.

At the previous hearing, which the Pastor and the acting General Secretary of the Church, by name Pastor Awuah, were supposed to attend, but failed to do so, the court gave a specific ruling commanding Apostle Boahen and Pastor Awuah to appear in person on July 25, 2023, but again, these two men of God disregarded the ruling.

They rather sent a young man, by name Ebenezer Kwofie, to represent them. The young man told the court that Apostle Ebenezer Boahen and Pastor Samuel Awuah had travelled, but the prosecutor disagreed and informed the court that the young man was not telling the truth.

The Prosecutor, Mr. Emmanuel Awuah, told the court that the second accused person (Pastor Awuah) was in his office the day before, so it was a deliberate attempt to disrespect the court by refusing to attend the hearing.

The Presiding Judge, Mrs. Hathie Ama Manu, ruled that since criminal cases were personal, therefore, the accused persons were expected to be in court, she issued a bench warrant for their arrest and subsequent appearance on the next adjourned date, which is August 11, 2023.
