The Film Classification Committee is chasing Leader and Founder of Ebenezer Miracle Worship Center, Opambour, for showing pornographic content on free-to-air television.
Reports from DGN disclose that Prophet Ebenezer Adarkwa Opambour Yiadom televised sexual scenes between a fetish priest and a person (alleged to be a client of the fetish priest) on his show. According to FCC, this content is unlawful and inappropriate for the free-to-air Prophet One TV.
The statement is as follows: “The Film Classification Committee (FCC) of the National Film Authority has sighted pornographic content being shown on Prophet One TV. In this content, Ebenezer Adarkwa-Yiadom, also known as Prophet Opambour, played a TV host recounting a sexual incident between a fetish priest (male) and a woman purported to be his client. This content depicts patently lewd sensual scenes perceived by the FCC as inappropriate for free to air television.
“The FCC has publicly announced that all audiovisual content must be classified before the exhibition. In furtherance to this, all broadcasting channels have been directed to classify in-house content according to the film classification criteria given. The FCC is requesting the management of Prophet One TV to provide the National Film Authority with the classification documents for all its in-house content including the pornographic content shown, by close of day on 10th September 2021.”
Failure to comply with the rules, Opambour will be charged according to the Offences and Penalties in Section 27 and Forfeiture of Equipment in Section 28 of the Development and Classification of Film Act 935.
