Church member assaults pastor over accounts details

A Ghanaian pastor, Bismarck Mensah, was beaten up by a member, after he asked him to share details of the church revenue, which was in his possession.

The pastor and some elders of the church had reportedly gone to the house of the member, Agya Osei, to ask him to render the accounts to them, but he became incensed and without any provocation, allegedly descended on his pastor with the help of his nephew – who was only identified as Kofi, reports Adomonline.

Mensah suffered a deep cut on the lower side of his left eye.

The attack, which was said to have happened on Thursday at about 8:00 am, was reported to the police and the pastor was later issued with a medical form to attend hospital, sources said.

The Brong-Ahafo Regional Police PRO, Chief Inspector Kinsley Oppong, said Pastor Mensah and his elders took to their heels and later reported the assault on them to the Sankore police, who later arrested and detained Osei and Kofi for questioning.

He claimed that the case is still under investigation after which the suspects will be arraigned before court.
