A Ghanaian pastor Ray Michael, who is the head pastor of cedar impact miracle church (CIMC) has rendered an apology for his Facebook post that seemed to support the US based Ghanaian pastor, Sylvester Ofori, who murdered his own wife in America.
Ray Michael, who is known as apostle General by his congregation, posted that “when you marry someone you don’t love, killing them at a point is inevitable. This is true following news of the murder of Barbara Tommey by her own husband, Sylvester Ofori.
His post received widespread condemnation on social media especially Facebook and twitter.
Ray Michael initially defended his post, exchanging rebuttals with those who disagreed with him. But with no success, he resorted to blocking the people who disagreed before finally deleting his post
But 24 hours after, a seeming remorseful Ray Michael has issued a communique, apologizing to the general public.
“I would like to officially apologize for a miscommunication made yesterday on Facebook on the rather sensitive subject.
Apparently the main intent of my post about effect of bad marriages was grossly miscommunicated.
I would like to reecho that I do not and I will never justify murder nor approve in any way what the supposed pastor did to his wife. Never! I sincerely apologies if my choice of words communicated otherwise,” the apology read in pieces.
News of the murder of Tommey by Sylvester Ofori has sent shockwaves round the Globe, especially the fact that she was shot 7 times.
