Nana Kwesi Yirenkyi, Head pastor of Jesus Blood Prophetic Ministry at Oblogo in Accra, was put before court on a charge of incest yesterday. He was refused bail.
Counsel for the accused, popularly known as Jesus One Touch; prayed the court, presided over by Mrs Georgina Mensah-Datsa, to grant his client bail contending that he leads a large congregation and has a fixed abode.
But the judge turned down the lawyers plea and remanded Pastor Yirenkyi to appear again on March 17.
Prophet Yirenkyi was arrested by the Domestic Violence and Victims Support Unit (DOVVSU) of the Police Service at the weekend for allegedly defiling his 10-year-old daughter with whom he lived in Accra.
According to the police, sometime this month, the girls mother who lives at Akropong in the Eastern Region, came for her. Back home, she realised that uncharacteristically, her daughter frequently wet her bed
Suspicious about the situation, she confronted her daughter who told her that the father had defiled her. The woman reported the matter to the Akropong DOVVSU on March 2, which referred it to the Ministries police branch of DOVVSU the following day. Prophet Yirenkyi was arrested but he had denied the allegation

Just that the story was worded so...oddly it had to be a former British colony or something - so I looked up the location.
I sometimes wonder on locations, so thought I would add a hand, so to speak...
