Mr. Moses Asitorkor, a 37 year-old used clothes dealer was on Thursday arrested after confessing at a stage-managed prayer session of his involvement in a burglary that took place at an Ecobank branch in Madina, Accra.
Mr Anthony Darkey, Hohoe Divisional Crime Officer, told the GNA that one Prophet Michael Bosompra, who presided over the session during a crusade, had requested to pray for people with problems.
He said Asitokor stepped forward and oil was sprinkled on him, adding that in the midst of the prayers, Darkey, in response to a question, admitted to the crime.
Mr Darkey said the congregation became alarmed and alerted the police who arrested the two.
Asitorkor and Prophet Bosompra reportedly met at a crusade at Dzemeni earlier and agreed to help each other.
He said Asitokor reportedly asked for financial help to boost his second-hand clothes business and was tasked by the prophet to “act” to pull the crowd at his maiden crusade in Hohoe.
Mr Darkey said further investigations were being conducted to unravel the truth.
