Kojo Nana Obiri-Yeboah
is a prominent Pentecostal
pastor from Ghana
who is active primarily in Uganda
. The son of evangelical pastor, John Obiri-Yeboah
who was a well-known preacher in Uganda in the 1970s and 80s. Like his father, Obiri-Yeboah is known for performing apparent miracles in his services. Yeboah recently came under international scrutiny after Ugandan police confiscated a small electric shock toy in his possession. The police have asserted that devices of that sort were likely used by Obiri-Yeboah to give small electric shocks to people in services, making the people think that they had felt the intervention of the divine. Police responded with particular swiftness due to recent worries about con-artists and general miracle cures in Uganda since there are many such miracles and devices which claim to be able to cure HIV
which is currently an epidemic in Uganda. The events with Obiri-Yeboah have prompted the police to engage in wider investigation of pastors claiming to produce miracles in Uganda.
