Listen to this article

Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, a money doubler and spiritualist, has been arrested.

Nana Agradaa, known for her money-making ritual, ‘sika gari,’ was apprehended on Tuesday night by a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives working in collaboration with the National Communications Authority.

Thunder TV and Ice1 TV, which allegedly broadcast money-doubling content in Kasoa, Central Region, were also shut down for operating without licenses.

The team seized two pieces of equipment from both locations that were allegedly used in the illegal transmission.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, announced this on her social media page on Wednesday, April 21, 2021.

According to available information, the TV channels owned by the self-styled traditional priestess have been operating illegally for years, leading to their closure.

The state’s action follows recent concerns about people posing as spiritualists broadcasting inappropriate content in the media.

It comes on the heels of the heinous murder of an 11-year-old boy by two teenagers for money ritual purposes.

 

Below is the Minister’s full post:

“At about 2200hrs on 20/04/2021, a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority, stormed the premises of two satellite television stations, namely, Thunder TV and Ice1 TV, who were illegally transmitting without licenses, at Kasoa in the Central Region

The team arrested the offenders among which included the owner of Thunder TV, Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, and seized two (2) pieces of equipment each used in the illegal transmission from both premises. Nana Agradaa advertises her “Sika Gari” on her TV station, which she claims is her personal god that multiplies money with some rituals she makes. She has hence admitted to this illegality and is currently in custody assisting with further investigations.

The influx of unregulated television stations on air has led to the promotion of certain content which may affect public order, public morality, and the rights and reputation of others. As such, efforts are underway to rid the system of this canker and reduce overcrowding on Ghana’s airwaves.”
