Following the murder of a 10-year-old boy in cold blood by two teenagers in Ofaakor, Accra, state protection has agreed to take action to prevent a repeat of the incident.
The two teens were incited to do so after seeing it on tv, according to a police investigation.
The police’s announcement ignited widespread outrage, with demands for authorities to take action against these stations, which openly promote spiritualism, money doubling, and money practices.
As a result, state security has shut down two television stations: Thunder TV and Ice 1 TV, both of which are owned by spiritualist Patricia Asiedu, also known as Nana Agradaa.
Nana Agradaa is a self-described Accra-based fetish priestess who has been a source of reference for various bogus spiritualism-related practices. The team apprehended the suspects, including the owner Nana Agradaa, and confiscated two (2) pieces of illicit transmitting equipment from each location.
Nana Agradaa has also confessed to the illegality, according to Theghanareport.com, and is reportedly in detention for further inquiry. The two news organizations are the first of several coordinated raids planned by the state for today.
Nana Agradaa has allegedly defrauded a number of people under the guise of doubling their money through her “Sika Gari” ritual idea, according to a report filed by theghanareport. Thunder TV, owned by Nana Agradaa, had its license revoked.
The National Communications Authority (NCA) revoked Nana Agradaa’s Thunder TV’s license on March 24, 2020, according to the article.
Ice 1 TV, on the other side, is said to have continued to function after receiving a formal order on June 17, 2020, to cease operations after their license expired on February 26, 2020.
Nana Agradaa was said to have certain law enforcement bodies on her staff, such as the police, which explains her unrestricted impunity in transparent money-doubling rituals.
