On Thursday, April 21, Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah gave specifics about what led to Patricia Asiedu, also known as Nana Agradaa, being arrested and her television channels being shut down.
According to sources, the fetish priestess was apprehended as part of security agencies' attempts to crack down on the activities of "money doublers," "scammers," and "spiritualists" who broadcast their material on television.
However, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, speaking on Metro News' Good Afternoon Ghana, clarified that the fetish priestess was apprehended for running a pirate station.
“...This is mostly due to the fact that it is running without authorization. It's not even a question of content...
“According to the brief I have, the station or broadcast platform was never allowed to function in the first place. As a result, it was a pirate station in operation,” he hinted.
Nana Agradaa's TV station was one of 49 in the country to be shut down for working without a license.
