‘Mmere’ hit maker Pastor Josh Laryea is being investigated by the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) over alleged immoral conduct.
The alleged immoral conduct has not been specified by the church, which has Pastor Mensah Otabil as its General Overseer. Josh Laryea heads the Doxa Temple branch of the church at Asylum down.
The Church Council in a letter dated March 29, 2017, said the popular gospel musician was withdrawn from the pulpit following a report of immoral conduct made against him by an unidentified person.
“The Presbytery has authorized the Disciplinary Committee to look into the allegations levelled against Rev. Laryea.
“Rev. Josh Laryea is being withdrawn from the pulpit and thereby the Doxa Temple with immediate effect. This is to allow the Committee carry out its work uninterrupted,” it further said in a letter addressed to the church members.
Meanwhile, the church has assigned a new pastor to replace pastor Laryea until investigation is completed.
The award-winning gospel artist was ordained as a pastor five years ago.
