The Head Pastor And Founder Of International Godsway Church (Igwc) Bishop Daniel Obinim Full Endorses Internet FraudFraud In law, fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain (money or other assets), or to deprive a victim of a legal right. Fraud can violate civil law (e.g., a fraud victim may sue the fraud perpetrator to avoid the fraud or recover monetary compensation) or criminal law (e.g., a fraud perpetrator may be prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities), or it may cause no loss of money, property, or legal right but still be an element of another civil or criminal wrong. The purpose of fraud may be monetary gain or other benefits, for example by obtaining a passport, travel document, or driver's license, or mortgage fraud, where the perpetrator may attempt to qualify for a mortgage by way of false statements. A fraud can also be a hoax, which is a distinct concept that involves deliberate deception without the intention of gain or of materially damaging or depriving a victim. Popularly Known As Sakawa!
The pastor in the video which went viral said he was not going to advise those involved in the act to stop saying the Americans and Europeans who fall victims to such activities are themselves fraudsters.

Scams or confidence tricks exploit victims using their credulity, naïveté, compassion, vanity, irresponsibility, or greed and exploiting that.

According To Multiple Sources: The Good Bishop Is Far From A Saint
According to local Ghana media:
Bishop Daniel Obinim’s name is synonymous with controversy in Ghana, the founder of International God’s Way Church.
He seems to be in the news for anything but Christianity as you would think a pastor is supposed to right?
Over the past few years, these are some of the things he has done that made headline news in Ghana.
In November 2009, the Suame Divisional Police Crime Officer, DSP Kwaku Duah, confirmed to PEACE NEWS that he had ordered Bishop Obinim to produce two individuals to assist in investigations into a case of conspiracy.
Bishop Daniel Obinim was alleged to be the brain behind a plot to bury dead snakes, bones suspected to be human parts and red candles at the church premises of a rival pastor, Prophet Ebenezer Adarkwa Yiadom, at Ahenema Kokoben, a suburb of Kumasi.
Bishop Daniel Obinim was at the police station to give a statement, after which he was granted bail by the police.
Giving People HIV?
In January 2010, Obinim again became a subject of news when a 30-year-old trader, Florence Nyame, threatened to take legal action against him for publicly claiming that she was infected with the deadly HIV\AIDS virusVirus A computer program that can replicate itself and spread from computer to computer or file to file. It comes to life only when you take a specific action, such as running a particular program..
According to Florence Nyame, medical reports made available to her by doctors indicated that she was not infected with the killer virus.
But Bishop Obinim allegedly told his entire congregation at Ashalebotwe in Accra that the woman’s failing health was due to the fact that she had contracted HIV/AIDS.
A tearful Florence said this had made her a laughing stock in her neighborhood ever since the day of the announcement before the large congregation.
In Still Another Case: The Bishop Beats Up Hot Fm Presenter With A Crowbar
In 2012, Bishop Daniel Obinim, founder of International God’s Way Church went to the studios of Hot FM in Accra and attacked Mr. Paul Kwame Ntim the host of the ‘Nya Asem Hwe’ programme and vandalized the studio’s glass partition and property worth GH¢130,850.
He accused the presenter of spreading false news about him.
In 2011, a junior pastor of his church William Fobih accused Bishop Daniel Obinim of sleeping with his wife. Pastor Fobih left the church but not before revealing that Bishop Obinim used ‘juju’ to charm his wife. Obinim responded by casting infirmity spell on Fobih’s son or daughter.
Christian Bishop Engaged In JuJu
Obinim claimed he can transform into any animal to visit his church members, this made him trend for weeks. This case worsened when his wife, Florence Obinim backed him up, confirming he can indeed transform into other animals.
Attacking Other Pastors
Obinim has directed his rants toward his fellow pastors who speak against his doings. Obinim’s attacks came in the form of vulgar words on his TV station. His victims were Rev. Sam Korankye of The Royal Chapel church and Rev. Owusu Bempah, who wouldn’t have it and called out Obinim for a spiritual fight.
According to the Ghana Press …
He Can Turn Into Anything Including Animals And Trees
The man of God speaking in an interview on his television channel, OB TV, indicated that when he enters the spiritual world, he can practically turn into anything. He said he once visited a member with his father Jesus and he Obinim turned into a Tiger, whiles Jesus turned into a Lion. Later in his church, Obinim further stated that he can turn into any animal of this earth once he goes spiritual. If this is not ridiculous, then we have no idea what is.
He Can Retrieve Passports From The Spiritual World
During service in his church, a member claimed that her passport had gone missing and she needs that to acquire a new one. Obinim indicated that the passport was taken in the spiritual world but he’ll go there to retrieve it. After minutes of gymnastics to show that he was going into the land of the dead to retrieve the passport, he threw the passport unto the floor with his members jubilating. This is the most ridiculous of claims ever.
He Can Change Body Parts
After his now infamous animal transformation statement, Obinim once again made another ridiculous statement to support his earlier claims. According to him, he’s been given the power by God to do basically anything once he enters the spiritual realm. He asked his members to approach him if they feel they are not content with a body part and he’ll change it for them. He said he can enlarge b00bs, butts, manhood, make someone tall or make another short. Boy!
He Is An Angel
His members now refer to him as Angel Obinim. According to him, he’s been made an angel by his father Jesus.
He Can Enter Peoples Dreams
In his response to Afia Schwarzenegger who questioned his “walk by” prophecy where he was telling his members what will happen to them including death, Obinim said he’ll enter Afia’s dream and deal with her. He asked her to contact all those who have had dream encounters with him so they tell her what happened to them. He said he is feared by everybody including fetish priests and other pastors because he’s been dealing with them spiritually.
