Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, the General Oversee of Glorious Word Power Ministry International has been remanded into police custody after being charged for threat of death.
Rev Bempah, and four others Mensah Ofori, Michael Boateng, Frederick Ohene, and Nathaniel Agyekum were together charged with six counts.
They have all pleaded not guilty to the charges pressed against them for threatening to kill Patricia Oduro Koranteng, popularly known as Nana Agradaa.
While Owusu Bempah and Mensah Ofori were charged with two counts of Offensive Conduct Conducive to the breach of peace and threat of death, the remaining three were also charged with assault on a public officer.
One other person is at large.
Though their lawyers led by Lawyer Garry Nimako Marfo prayed for the accused persons to be granted bail, prosecution led by Chief Inspector Dennis Terkpetey opposed the bail.
It was the case of the prosecution that two of the police officers they assaulted are still on admission at the hospital.
The court presided over by Her Honour Afia Owusua Appiah dismissed the application for bail to allow prosecution enough time to investigate the case since they were only arrested yesterday.
The accused persons were subsequently remanded into Police custody to reappear on September 20.
