Evangelist Patricia Oduro Korateng, formerly known as Nana Agradaa has appeared before the Accra Circuit court today.
In a recent update on her trial, the court has ordered the prosecution of the trial to file disclosures in two weeks as it adjourns the case to May 26 by the presiding judge, Emmanuel Essandoh.
Meanwhile, the Ghana News Agency has gathered that Nana Agradaa has paid GHC57,500 she owed the National Communications Authority over the past two years.
Per updates in the development of the case, the money which was paid on April 27 covers only one year.
Nana Agradaa was arrested after a raid by a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority (NCA) at the premises of the satellite television stations for illegally transmitting without licences.
The Minister of Communication, Hon. Ursula Owusu reacted to her arrest in a statement she released on her Facebook page.
She wrote; At about 2200hrs on 20/04/2021, a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority, stormed the premises of two satellite television stations, namely, Thunder TV and Ice1 TV, who were illegally transmitting without licenses, at Kasoa in the Central RegionThe team arrested the offenders among which included the owner of Thunder TV, Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa and seized two (2) equipment each used in the illegal transmission from both premises. Nana Agradaa advertises her “Sika Gari” on her TV station, which she claims is her personal god that multiplies money with some rituals she makes. She has hence admitted to this illegality and is currently in custody assisting with further investigations.The influx of unregulated television stations on air have led to promotion of certain content which may affect public order, public morality and the rights and reputation of others. As such, efforts are underway to rid the system of this canker and reduce overcrowding on Ghana’s air waves.
