The pastor whose prophecy dancehall artiste Shatta Wale has cited as the reason for his latest fiasco has been picked up by men believed to be officers of the Ghana Police Service.

The founder and leader of New Life Kingdom Chapel International, Stephen Akwasi, is reported to have been arrested at the premises of Accra FM while preparing for an interview on the station’s mid-morning show.

Popularly known as Jesus ‘Ahuofe’, the preacher was seen in a viral video explaining circumstances under which the self-styled Dancehall King would be shot.

While speaking on the radio show on September 28, 2021, the preacher compared the pending catastrophe to that of South African legend Lucky Dube, who was shot on October 18, 2007.

On the back of this, the singer embarked on what has now been uncovered as a plan to fake his attack on the date specified by the pastor.

After the Police stepped in to investigate the matter, Shatta Wale subsequently spilled the beans about his intent, adding that he will remain on the run until “this country shows me there are laws.”

He described the police as lackadaisical in not acting on the life-threatening prophecy and has vowed to stay in the shadows until justice, he believes, is served.

Barely five hours after this, three men clad in plainclothes escorted Jesus Ahuofe off the Accra FM building for questioning.

Meanwhile, the Police have ruled out any supposed attack on the singer.

ACP Kwesi Ofori has, however, told JoyNews that the Police is still unable to trace the whereabouts of Shatta Wale.
