The Family of an Assemblies of God Pastor who was stabbed to death by his own nephew has dismissed claims by the latter that the deceased was engaged in human sacrifices.
The suspect has confessed to the crime but has justified same, claiming the pastor had targeted him for rituals, a claim the family has vehemently denied.
Rev. David Nabegmado was stabbed multiple times in his office on the church premises by the suspect on Sunday while he was preparing to deliver a sermon.
Speaking on behalf of the family on Monday 31st December 2018, Dan Makandan urged the public to disregard what he described as an erroneous impression created by the suspect in the viral video after his arrest.
“The Nabegmado family dissociates itself alleged statements made by Francis Nabegmado. Rev. David Nabegmado is a genuine man of God who is humble and down to earth. He was an asset not only to the family but to the Church and Ghana as a whole. The family is deeply saddened by the events and request the public to disregard all statements made to tarnish the personality of an accomplished man of God.
“The family affirms that Rev. David Nabegmado is not an idol worshiper but a genuine man of God and we plead with the public to respect the moment the family and the church is going through and allow them the space to grieve the genuine man of God and the accomplishment of God’s work that he’s done for the country as a whole.”
