Gospel musician, has said that one of her junior pastors has been arrested for allegedly stealing over GH₵30,000 from her bank account in order to finance sports betting.

Speaking on her evangelism program on Angel FM, she revealed that she had discovered the crime during a bank transaction.

She disclosed that an assistant pastor known only as Apostle had gained access to her bank account and was using the money for gambling and ostentatious internet purchases, such as Amazon shopping.

“Because the money was not his, he was placing bets in the thousands,” she explained. A detailed analysis revealed digital expenditures totalling GH₵31,000 on betting, Amazon, and other online transactions.

“He was on a spending spree because he hadn't earned the money,” she added. The suspect, known as Apostle, is currently in police custody.

In April, Diana Asamoah had another pastor arrested for stealing GH₵4,000 from her mobile wallet.

“He translates my sermons into English and reads the Bible for me. He speaks in tongues and sometimes leads in my absence.

“He has begged for forgiveness before, and I have pardoned him,” she said about the earlier offender.

She credited the Holy Spirit and digital innovations led by Vice-President Dr. for making it so simple to discover the theft.

“Thanks to the Holy Spirit and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia's digitalisation efforts, everything is simpler. He admitted to seeing my secret code during a transaction and transferred GH₵4,000, intending to spend it on personal pleasures,” she stated in April.
