The Ghana Police Service has explained that it isn’t choking prophets from prophesying yet requesting that they be guided by the laws of Ghana.
Public Relations Officer of Ghana Service Superintendent Alexander Kofi Obeng said the law is clear and any prophecy that may create fear and panic would be dealt with.
He said that prophets would not be permitted to involve the ‘Holy Spirit’ as a card to get away from prosecution.
He cautioned prophets who might prophesy with regards to passing information to people, he urged them to show verification of their predictions.
He demonstrated thus:
“The prophets claim the Holy Spirit or some other profound being uncovered the prediction to them, then, at that point, they ought to be ready to introduce the Holy Spirit under the watchful eye of the law court to affirm the prophecy.
He added that the Police won’t keep away righteous men from their work but, they should work within the limits of the law.
He noted also that nobody is above the laws and should any individual bridges the law, he shall not go free.
“It is also a crime for a person, by means of electronic communications service, to knowingly send a communication that is false or misleading and likely to prejudice the efficiency of life-saving service or to endanger the safety of any person,
“A person found guilty under these laws could be liable to a term of imprisonment of up to five years.”
The statement was however signed by Superintendent Alexander Obeng, the Director of Public Affairs, Ghana Police Service.
