Fetish priestess neglected by her gods as she suffers double arrest after granted Gh¢5,000 bail
A Ghanaian fetish priestess, Nana Agradaa seems to have been neglected by her gods which she over the years claim are powerful after police re-apprehended her shortly after she was granted a Gh¢5,000 self-recognisance bail by an Accra Circuit Court on Thursday, April 21.
A joint team of police and National Security Intelligence operatives in collaboration with the National Communications Authority (NCA) on Wednesday picked up Patience Asiedua, as she is known by birth, together with others for operating two TV stations without a license.
The operation according to Communications Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful in a post is in line with the government’s efforts to clamp down on media organisations that operate and broadcast unapproved content without a license.
The two TV stations namely Thunder TV and Ice1 TV owned by the fetish priestess were shut down.
Agradaa, after her arrest, pleaded not guilty to the charges levelled against her and was granted bail with the condition that she deposits her passport at the court’s registry.
But shortly after her release, videos making rounds on social media saw the priestess rearrested by the Police after a complaint filed by Rev Kwaku Agyei Antwi known in the ministry as Rev Obofour against her.
“By the grace of God, everything is alright. The court case is fine but we are going to another case. I have been told that Reverend Obofour has filed a case against me. He claims that I have verbally assaulted him,” Nana Agradaa said.
Meanwhile, Patience Asiedua is expected to appear before the Accra Circuit Court on May 12, 2021.
