The leadership of Royalhouse Chapel International has denied allegations of sexual misconduct against its founder and leader, Apostle General Sam Korankye Ankrah.

In a statement sighted on its Facebook page, the church called the claims by self-styled fetish priest Osofo Samuel Kojo Bentil Odoom "deeply troubling, purposefully destructive, and defamatory."

Bentil had reportedly accused Ankrah of sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl for 5 years and using her blood to build the church.

The statement signed by Rev. Derek Amanor, General Secretary of Royalhouse Chapel stated: "Apostle General Sam Korankye Ankrah has never been involved in any of Bentil's allegations in any shape, form or fashion either with this particular individual mentioned by Bentil or any other person(s)."

"The allegations by this self-styled fetish priest therefore lack merit and should be treated with the contempt it deserves," Rev. Amanor added in the statement.

While acknowledging the potential damage to public perception, the church said it viewed the claims as a "deliberate and calculated attempt to tarnish the hard-earned reputation" of Most Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah.

Royalhouse Chapel, which has grown to become one of the largest Pentecostal churches in Ghana, said it had come this far "by the grace of God, hard work and sacrifices by the Apostle General and the leadership of the church."

The church advised the public to "completely disregard these defamatory publications" and said it would "explore its options under the law."

However, in a spirit of forgiveness, it also prayed for Bentil "that the Lord would have mercy on their souls."
