Founder and General Overseer of the Zion Army Church at Awutu Bontrase in the Awutru Senya West District of the Central Region, Pastor John Mark has been accused by a church member of hypnotising and having sexual intercourse with her for a year.
The female church member [name withheld] who is married claims she was hypnotised by the pastor for one year until she came to her senses and realised she has been sexually abused.
He further alleged that the man of God had also been sleeping with other female church members.
She disclosed that the pastor bought her beads to wear on the waist and since then, she had always had sex with him without resistance.
She said: “whenever he calls me, I go. Even when I am doing something important, and he calls, I leave it behind and go to him. I don’t love him and would not have had sex with him if not for his spell”.
Meanwhile, the man of God has admitted to sleeping with the woman after he was summoned before the traditional council.
The traditional council has also fined him GHC5,000 and ruled for him to be banished from the community.
