A Volta Region based prophet, Frank Agbenyo, founder and leader of New Vision Healing Ministry International Church in Mafi-Dzogadze within the Central Tongu District is been investigated, following report that he forcibly had sex with his church deacon’s wife.
The Tongu Divisional Police Command in the Volta region is investigating Frank Agbenyo after it was alleged that he raped the mother two though the crime was not reported by the victim at the time it happened.
Although the victim, Favour Agbozo failed to report the alleged incident at the appropriate time, the Police has stated that it will not shield the perpetrator when found guilty at the end of the investigation.
The alleged incident transpired at the beginning of the year, 2021 but out of fear, Favour Agbozo did not speak of the issue until April 24, 2021, when she revealed the act to her husband, Orlando Tome.
Narrating the matter, Favour said, she went for a consultation at the mission house but could not recall what led her into the prophet’s bed until ”he was done having sex with me”.
The young woman, looking very traumatised continued her ordeal saying “He (Prophet) asked me to drink a drop of honey he pulled from his room as part of performing prayers and while praying for me with his hand on my head, I felt so heavy and weak and when I became normal, I saw myself naked beside him in bed”
She then alleged that the prophet used a charm to lure her into the act, adding that she always feels “uncomfortable and guilty each day especially when I am alone and in the night.”
Her husband, upon hearing the matter reported it to the elders of the community for a solution. He said, the elders sought for a ram and assorted drinks to clean the mess but he disagreed with the idea and called for legal action against the prophet.
Orlando Tome alleged that, the Prophet, popularly known in the area as Fire Pot together with his two wives and families have apologised to him on several occasions but he wants the laws to deal with him, this to serve as a deterrent to others.
It was also made known that, the said prophet is fond of putting other women in bed despite having two wives.
