Police investigate Agradaa over alleged money doubling scam

Police investigate Agradaa over alleged money doubling scam

The Ghana Police Service has launched an investigation into allegations of money doubling against Patricia Aseidua, the founder of the Heaven Way Church in Weija, Accra.

Patricia Asiedua, also known as Nana Agradaa, is rumoured to have announced the alleged money doubling on her television station.

Members of the church claim Nana Agradaa took money from them last Friday with the promise of doubling it but failed to keep the promise despite receiving the money.

Thousands of her followers later besieged the church grounds in order to claim their seed money.

“The Police have launched an investigation into an alleged money-doubling scam perpetrated against some members of the Heaven Way Church in Weija, Accra, by the church’s founder, Patricia Asiedua.” “The investigation was launched in response to reports that came to the attention of the police on the matter,” said the Ghana Police Service in a statement.

The Police Service is also encouraging anyone with information that can assist with the investigation to come forward.

“We would like to urge anyone with information that can help the investigation to report to the Accra Regional Police Command at Accra Central, close to the COCOBOD building,” the statement continued.

While the investigation is ongoing, the police are urging the public and those who may have been affected to remain calm and refrain from taking the law into their own hands.

Nana Agradaa, a former traditional priestess, was once well-known for her money-making ritual, ‘sika gari.’

She was arrested a few months ago for allegedly operating two TV channels – Thunder TV and Ice1 TV – that allegedly broadcast money-doubling content in Kasoa, Central Region, without licenses and in violation of section 137 of the Criminal Offences Act, 1960.

Concerns had been raised about people posing as spiritualists broadcasting inappropriate content in the media.
She was later convicted and sentenced to a GHS36,000 fine for operating a television station without a license, and a GHS10,000 fine for “charlatanic advertisement.”

The repented priestess now runs Heaven Way Church in Weija, Accra, where the latest scam allegation is said to have occurred.
