The Police have withdrawn its case against the General Overseer of the Glorious Word Power Ministry, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah.
The preacher and three others were facing charges including causing harm to police officers.
Rev. Owusu Bempah together with Michael Boateng, Frederick Ohene and Nathaniel Agyekum all pleaded not guilty to two charges of abetment to cause harm and unlawful damage.
On Wednesday, Police Prosecutor Insp. Jonas Lawer told the court that the police was withdrawing the charges against the accused persons without providing any reason for the move.
The Accra Circuit Court, therefore, declared the case withdrawn and directed the discharge of the accused persons.
This comes two weeks after Owusu Bempah and six others were discharged by another Circuit Court on November 30, following a similar withdrawal for threats of death on Nana Agradaa.
The prosecution, in this separate instance, had filed and served on all the accused persons with all necessary disclosures and witness statements with a hearing scheduled for January 19, 2022.
