Nana Agradaa sentenced for fake ‘Sika Gari’ rituals

A self-styled fetish priestess Patricia Asiedu, also known as Nana Agradaa, has been convicted and sentenced by an Accra Circuit Court.

The conviction came after she changed her plea from not guilty to guilty on Wednesday, June 16.

She was dragged to court for charlatan advertisement concerning the ‘sika gari’ programme she showed on live TV and broadcasting without a license.

Nana Agradaa was sentenced to a fine of 3,000 penalty unit (GH₵36,000) on count one, which is operating a TV station without a license.

In default, she will serve a three-year jail term in hard labour.

For the offence of charlatanic advertisement (Sika Gari), the court sentenced her to a fine of GH₵10, 000.

In default, she will serve a year in court.

The court said the sentences are to run concurrently which means she will pay the highest fine which is GH₵36, 000.

The priestess, was arrested on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, for operating a television station without a license.

Background

Two Television stations, Ice TV and Thunder TV, belonging to the priestess, were shut down on April 20.

The two media houses were amongst many on the state’s list in the wake of clamping down on charlatans and swindlers.

Nana Agradaa has swindled an uncountable number of her gullible audience under the pretext of doubling cash for them through her openly advertised ‘Sika Gari’ ritual concept.

The said stations used as tools for advertisements have had many unsuspecting Ghanaians fall prey to Nana Agradaa’s scam.

Nana Agradaa’s Thunder TV had its authorization revoked on March 24, 2020, according to the National Communications Authority (NCA).

On the other hand, ice 1 TV, another member of the ‘Agradaa conglomerate’, also operated illegally even after a written directive to cease operations was served.

Records available to theghanareport.com indicate that the authorization of Ice 1 TV expired on February 26, 2020.

Who is Nana Agradaa?

The self-styled Accra-based fetish priestess has been a reference point on numerous fraudulent activities in the name of spiritualism.

On many occasions, her operations have been reported by some bold folk who have fallen prey. Many others have stayed mute after their encounter yielded no effect.

However, it was alleged that Nana Agradaa had some law enforcement agencies such as the police on her payroll, hence her unabated impunity on open advertorials in money doubling rituals.

Money ritual crime

The sudden thirst for fast money by some young people in the country has resulted in the commitment of crimes.

This includes the latest gruesome murder of an innocent 10-year-old, Ishmael Abdallah.

He was killed in broad daylight by two teenagers at the request of a female spiritualist.

This generated a public fury on the constant societal pressures by supposed spiritualists using open and unregulated channels to communicate their ‘simple powers’ of doubling cash or making one earn money effortlessly.

The suspects have been arraigned and remanded pending trial.
