Ellembelle NPP man refutes accusation of killing a pastor
A former Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Ellembelle Constituency of the Western Region, Samuel Erzoah popularly known as Abronye has refuted allegations in some media outlets that he issued death threats on radio against the deceased Founder of Cross of Calvary Healing and Deliverance Ministry Rev. Anthony Kwame Nyame at Teleku-Bokazo.
According to him, he never threatened Rev. Nyame with death when the two were engaged in a heated verbal exchanges on West End Radio at Ampain on October 07, 2018 over a piece of land by the road side at Teleku-Bokazo.
Mr. Erzoah denied the statement that "if Pastor Nyame does not kill him, he will do it" adding that it was a fabrication to associate him with the demise of the Pastor some few days after the two were embroiled in some petty squabbles over that piece of land.
Readers will recall that Mr. Erzoah accused Rev. Nyame of hiring the services of some 15 male youth from Anwia, a neighbouring town to demolish a structure he was erecting for a summer hut to serve as a place of social relaxation on October 07, 2018.
The rationale behind the move which was later denied by Pastor Nyame was that the piece of land in contention belonged to his late father, Mr. Gabriel Nyame who used the land to build a store some years ago.
After Pastor Nyame's father ceased operation, the land which belongs to government but in front of Mr. Erzoah's house was lying fallow for so many years. As such, Mr. Erzoah decided to also use the land for a store.
Mr. Erzoah told this reporter that the demise of the Rev. Nyame on October 12 at the Saint Martin De Porres Catholic hospital at Eikwe could not be linked with the land in dispute thereby attributing his death to him as being circulated in some media houses to tarnish his hard won reputation.
He said he took the matter to the Ellembelle District Police Command for investigations to allow the law to take its course but never struggled with the Pastor when the structure was being demolished.
Mr. Erzoah therefore appealed to the reading public to disregard the publication in certain quarters of the media that he is behind the death of pastor Nyame.
He therefore urged 3news.com which first published the issued a death threat on radio against the late Pastor to within 24 hours retract the publication and apologize to him, else he would sue the 3news.com for defamation.
"I'm putting on record that I never said it on West End Radio that I will kill the late Pastor as the 3news.com has published so I'm giving 3news.com 24 hours ultimatum to retract the publication against me and apologize too, else I sue them for defamation because you can never cook any story against me", he emphasized.
He added "How can ordinary person like me, Erzoah killed a whole Pastor who has been saving people's lives, this is impossible, I'm innocent but as I have stated already, I will take 3news.com to court if they to do what I have said".
