Rev Obofour and his bodyguards, garbed in black outfits, made their presence known when they showed up at the funeral in their numbers.

It’s unclear where the funeral was held, however, several reports suggested it was held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.

Last week, Rev Obofuor smoked the peace pipe with the founder of the International God’s Way Church.

The two surprised many after Reverend Obofour called Angel Obinim on national television to ask of the date of his father’s funeral after honouring his official invitation.

According to Reverend Obofour, though he had disagreements and conflicts with Angel Obinim in the past, they have since remained close friends and brothers in the ministry.

“We have to be present there. There would be lots of pastors and he is my brother… there is no way I can be happy about his father’s demise. I will go and support him because I know how it feels like to lose a father,” Rev. Obofour said.

Earlier, ‘Angel’ Daniel Obinim sent a word of caution to Obofour indicating that Ghana will not be able to contain both of them if he fails to stop peddling falsehood about him.

For those who are on top at the moment, they shouldn’t get too comfortable, because I may return soon,” BogaGH remarked in a chat.

He also hinted that fans should expect to see him soon in a Netflix movie.
