Bishop Daniel Obinim, founder of Godsway International Ministry, who together with his two associate pastors allegedly vandalised the property of Hot FM, an Accra-based radio station, wants the charges against them dropped by an Accra High Court.

This was after Detective Inspector Bismark Adu-Gyamfi finished his evidence in a court presided over by Justice Abdulai Iddrisu, where the three suspects?Obinm, Kingsley Baah and Kofi Kwetey?are being tried.

Samuel Ata Akyea, counsel for the suspects, told the court that they would file a submission of no case in the matter to have the case against the suspects dropped because the evidence by the prosecution has so far failed to link the suspects to the offence.

The case has been adjourned to January 6, 2015.

Counsel for the suspects, Samuel Ata Akyea, had to start his cross-examination of the witness again after it was detected that the recording machines failed to record the previous cross-examination.

The investigator had denied claims that the crowbar allegedly used by the bishop was his (investigator?s) invention.

During cross-examination by Ata Akyea, Adu-Gymafi stated that one Frank Boateng, a staff, gave the implement to the counter officer at the Adabraka Police Station.

The witness said he did not talk to the supposed security officer at the radio station on that day and added that the security officer ran to his hometown because he was scared.

When defence counsel asked when the security man disclosed this information to him, the witness said Boateng gave him this information and that he did not personally meet the security officer.

He denied claims that he did not want to bring the security man to court and added that there was no Close Circuit television at the studios.

The witness, in his examination in-chief, tendered the tape on which Obinim could be heard saying, ?Aden nti na mo sei nipa din saa?meaning ?why are you tarnishing people?s images?

The crowbar said to have been used by Obinim has already been tendered in court.

The accused persons reportedly vandalised property including transmitters and amplifiers estimated to cost GH?130,580.
