Alleged money doubler and spiritualist, Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, has been granted bail.
Nana Agradaa, known for her moneymaking ritual, ‘sika gari’, was arrested by a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority on Tuesday night.
Her arrest came on the heels of the gruesome killing of an 11-year-old boy allegedly by two teenagers for money ritual purposes.
Two TV channels – Thunder TV and Ice1 TV – that allegedly broadcast money doubling content at Kasoa in the Central Region, were also shut down for operating without licenses, on the day of her arrest.
The team seized two pieces of equipment each used in the alleged illegal transmission from both premises.
This was announced by the Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful on her social media page on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.
TV channels owned by the self-styled traditional priestess have been operating without authorization for years.
The state’s action follows recent concerns about the broadcasting of inappropriate content in the media space by persons parading themselves as spiritualists
