After months of dabbling in a well-aired tirade on radio, founder of the International Gods Way Church Ghana, Bishop Daniel Obinim and Okomfo Yaw Appiah, a local witch doctor agreed on air on a local radio station, Boss FM to face off on Tuesday noon at Kumasi Jubilee Park for a spiritual battle.
‘… Okomfo Yaw Appiah, the fetish priest who is said to have given spiritual powers to Bishop Daniel Obinim to operate in the spiritual realm’
However, to the disappointment of the many who had trooped the park to witness the duo faceoff, Okomfo Yaw Appiah was noticeably absent.Hundreds of eager spectators converged on Tuesday at the Kumasi Jubilee Park in the Ashanti Region, Ghana, to witness the much hyped spiritual showdown between a controversial local church founder, Bishop Daniel Obinim and Fetish Priest Okomfo Yaw Appiah.
This battle was expected to come off last week in the studios of Accra-based Happy FM, but Obinim did not show up to meet the Fetish priest. Some police officers were also at the Jubilee Park to ensure orderliness as the numbers increased. Lauretta Timah says Pastor Daniel Obinim eventually left the Jubilee Park after he waited for over an hour without the presence of the fetish priest.
The Fetish Priest, is said to have alleged on radio that Pastor Obinim operates with powers that he bestowed upon him, and that he is not of God as he claims. The claim thus angered the controversial Bishop who denied it and dared the Fetish priest to a challenge.
As part of the challenge, the self-acclaimed Bishop had reportedly vowed to invoke the power of God to kill the fetish priest. He thus carried along with him a white coffin which was transported to the jubilee park in an ambulance.
Okomfo Yaw Appiah was not present at Jubilee Park and so Bishop told all and sundry that he will be going to his house himself together with his church members come this Friday.

In the begining ….
Okomfo Yaw Appiah
The fetish priest who is said to have given spiritual powers to Bishop Daniel Obinim to operate in the spiritual realm, has finally spoken.
In an exclusive interview with Accra FM Friday morning, Okomfo Yaw Appiah condemned Obinim’s viscous attacks on Reverend Sam Korankye to the extent of calling him a ‘fool’.
He also chastised Obinim for showing gross disrespect to the Reverend.
“Even if he (Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah) has said anything bad about you, you should know that he is older than you…” Okomfo Yaw Appiah also warned him to be careful of the way he talks, because “when you throw a stone at the wall, it bounces back to you
” In a somber mood, the fetish priest apologised to Ghanaians for offering to help Obinim gain spiritual powers.
He also urged Obinim to go on his knees and seek forgiveness from God because he has so many filthy things on him, and made reference to Obinim’s adultery with one of his church members years ago.
Okomfo Yaw Appiah made several revelations, adding that Obinim’s end is near and hence his several outburst. “Obinim has turned into a dog…and he is barking now.
Whenever a dog is about to die, it barks…” Asked whether he can take back the powers from Obinim, the fetish priest said “The Bible says everything shall pass away, except the word of God. I know this is the end time for Obinim…”
However, a spokesman for the local police, ASP Mohammed Tanko of the Ashanti Regional police, Okomfo Yaw Appiah was not put under house arrest, but was being held in protective custody.
