A pastor has told the police that “holy spirit” led him to allow hemp smoking inside his church.
Reverend Francis Antwi, aka Obofour, who is founder of Anointed Palace Chapel, was seen in a video handing narcotics to a congregrant to smoke.
The incident happened during a deliverance programme in his church. He was reported to have said he was only trying to deliver the man in the video from evil spirits.
Antwi said ‘he was in trance and didn’t see the man smoke’ the banned substance.
However, the man seen smoking in the video has claimed they both faked the miracle session. He said the pastor approached him to play the script for a fee, according to Daily Graphic.
The incident, which happened in Ghana, instantly stirred a backlash and led to the police inviting the pastor.
