In a bizarre report, a self-acclaimed man of God identified as Matthew Osika has been nabbed by the Berekum Police in the Bono Region after allegedly stealing musical instruments of the Methodist church just to establish his own church.
Per the reports, these instruments belong to Amankokwaa Methodist Church in the Berekum West District.
The police during their preliminary investigations discovered that the musical instruments were packed in the home of the suspect who claimed he also bought them from someone he refused to name to start his own church.
Speaking to reporters, a senior pastor of the Methodist church identified as Paul Asante Bonah stated that they had a tip-off that the items were in the home of the suspect so they, in turn, informed the police and subsequently went to the suspect’s house where he was arrested upon seeing the instruments in his room.
However, Matthew Osika after being busted claimed he bought the instruments from individuals to start a church but did not bother to ascertain the true owners of the items before paying for them.
The instruments are organs, guitar, microphones, speakers, combos, fans and many others.
He is set to be arraigned before court on charges of conspiracy, stealing and unlawful entry while police say they are conducting further investigations to ensure that there are no accomplices in the matter.
