This has gone on for many years until the new inspector General of Police Dampare came into the scene and started arresting preachers who predict doom through false prophecies.
With the arrest of two popular preachers, Owusu Bempah and Jesus Ahoufe, we were eager to see how these prophets will operate on their 31st night service.
The day came and while Owusu Bempah and others refused to Prophesy on what will happen the next year, some went the old ways but used different adjectives to qualify their lies.
Nigel Gaisie still predicted what will happen in the next year but said it was Prophesy on a land called Umofia and not Ghana.
“I am not talking to the people of Ghana because of the repressive system going on in Ghana. I am not talking to the topographical, geographical land called Ghana. I am prophesying to a nation called Umuofia,” he said.
Umuofia, the supposed country used by Nigel in his doom Prophesy, is a fictional country used by multiple award winning African writer Chinua Achebe in his novel ‘Things Fall Apart’.
Explaining himself on why he refused to mention Ghana although he was referring to it in everything, he said he knows the directives laid down by the new IGP and didn’t want to be a scapegoat.
“These are the only prophecies I have for you, if I have seen death and you don’t want me to tell you that is ok, I won’t be used as the scapegoat,” he said after his many prophecies.
