Is prophecy Of Death a criminal offence in Ghana? Here is what the law says

The CRIMINAL OFFENCES ACT – 1960
(ACT 29) Section – 75 – Threat of Death, States that “Whoever threatens any other person with death, with intent to put that person in fear of death, is guilty of a second degree felony.”

The law is explicit on threats of death. Telling someone that he or she will die amounts to psychological violence punishable under the laws of Ghana contrary to section 75 of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960 (ACT 29)

Threat of death is to threaten any person with the intention of putting that person into fear of death. This is a second degree felony and jail term is 10years maximum and 5 years minimum.

Anyone affected by a threat of death or so called prophecy can report the matter to the nearest police station as provided for by the laws of Ghana and ensure that the criminal prosecution is instituted

Record any so called man of God who prophesy to you. This would serve as vidence. If a pastor asks you to sow a seed or takes money from and promises you that you shall get pregnant, or get a job or get married or even gives you a lotto number etc. That is a binding contract and if you don’t get the results, the pastor must refund your money to you to avoid the pastor being sued or arrested for fraudulent misrepresentation.
