The pastor whose prophecy dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale, has cited as the reason for his recent shooting hoax is expected to appear in court later today.

The founder and leader of New Life Kingdom Chapel International, Stephen Akwasi, had been remanded for five days by an Accra Circuit Court.

He was picked up on October 19 by the police 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 spilt the beans about his intent, adding that he will remain on the run until “this country shows me there are laws.”

Shatta Wale has since charged with the publication of false news, with his case adjourned to be October 28.

He was remanded with two other members of his management team.

In the same development, Jesus Ahuaofe is being charged for causing fear and panic.
