State security has shut down two TV stations, ‘Thunder TV’ and ‘Ice 1 TV’, which belongs to popular spiritualist Patricia Asiedu, popularly known as Nana Agradaa.
Nana Agradaa’s stations were closed and equipment seized for operating without the necessary authorization.
The two media houses are amongst many on the state’s list of targeted raids today.
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 a tool for advertisements have had many unsuspecting Ghanaians fall prey to Nana Agradaa’s scam.
The move comes on the back of the State’s effort at tackling swindlers, money doublers, and other criminals masquerading as spiritualists.
Nana Agradaa’s Thunder TV had its authorisation 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.
The company was then directed to cease operations in a letter dated June 17, 2020.
Both stations are based in Kasoa in the Central Region.
Nana Agradaa has been using her platform to exchange insults against Rev Obofour, a self-styled pastor who is the founder and leader of Anointed Palace Chapel (APC).
The two have been engaged in public verbal exchanges using unprintable words since the recent Kasoa ritual murder story.
