State security personnel have arrested popular spiritualist Patricia Asieduaa popularly known as Nana Agradaa.
Two television stations, ‘Thunder TV’ and ‘Ice 1 TV’, both belonging to her, have also been shut down.
Nana Agradaa’s Kasoa-based stations were closed down and their equipment seized for operating without the necessary authorisation from the National Communication Authority (NCA).
This action forms part of moves by the state crack down on a list of TV stations engaged in swindling and money-doubling rituals.
Nana Agradaa uses her TV stations to openly advertise her money-doubling (Sika Gari) ritual schemes.
The NCA revoked Nana Agradaa’s Thunder TV on 24 March last year.
Ice 1 TV continued its operations illegally after its authorisation expired on 26 February last year.
Ice TV was officially asked to cease operations on 17 June 2020.
The crackdown comes on the back of the killing of an 11-year-old boy by two teenagers for money rituals in Kasoa, Central Region.
The suspects, Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini allegedly conspired and killed Ishmael Mensah on Saturday, 3 April 2021.
The boys alleged they got the idea from watching a spiritualist on TV.
