The Film Classification Committee (FCC) is after the General Overseer of the Ebenezer Miracle Worship Center, Prophet Ebenezer Opambuor Yiadom after he allegedly showed pornographic contents on his television channel Prophet One TV.
A statement ordering the Prophet Opambuor to present in–house contents by the close of Friday, September 10 has been issued by the FCC.
“The Film Classification Committee (FCC) of the National Film Authority has sighted pornographic content being shown on Prophet One TV. In this content, Ebenezer Adarkwa-Yiadom also known as Prophet Opambour played a TV host recounting a sexual incident between a fetish priest (male) and a woman purported to be his client. This content depicts patently lewd sensual scenes perceived by the FCC as inappropriate for free to air television,” the statement said.
“The FCC has publicly announced that all audiovisual content must be classified before the exhibition. In furtherance to this, all broadcasting channels have been directed to classify in-house content according to the film classification criteria given. The FCC is requesting the management of Prophet One TV to provide the National Film Authority with the classification documents for all its in-house content including the pornographic content shown, by close of day on 10th September 2021,” it added.
Failure to go by this order, Prophet One will be subjected to the Offences and Penalties in Section 27 and Forfeiture of Equipment in Section 28 of the Development and Classification of Film Act 935.
