The court was constituted by a seven-member panel with Justice William Atuguba as its Chairman.

At the last court sitting, the supreme court adjourned the case indefinitely.

The case for the review of the judgment by the Supreme Court was filed after the highest court of the land by a five-zero decision on November 11, 2015, dismissed an appeal filed by Prophet Jehu-Appiah, against his removal as Akaboha III and the Head Prophet of the MDCC.

The former had challenged the lawfulness of his removal from office, questioning the capacity of the persons to remove him in January 2002.

Prophet Jehu-Appiah stated in his affidavit that, “The appellate court failed to give a consideration to the fact that the respondents had no capacity to have instituted the case against him, and that the act of the respondents was in sharp conflict with the constitution of the Church”.

Prophet Jehu-Appiah was leader of the MDCC until 2002 when the church removed him.

After his dismissal, the Church filed a suit at the High Court in Swedru to affirm its decision. Prophet Jehu-Appiah appealed to the Court of Appeal but the case was dismissed.

He appealed to the Supreme Court, which also dismissed the suit and sought for a review.
