Nana Agradaa, a former traditional priestess who has since turned to evangelism, has been granted bail in a fraud case. She was arrested for allegedly swindling members of her Heaven Way Church located in Weija, Ghana. Agradaa was released on bail in the sum of GH¢150,000 and was instructed to provide three sureties, one of whom must have landed property and be justified. As part of her bail conditions, she was also directed to deposit her passport at the court registry.
The case against Agradaa has been adjourned and is scheduled to resume on November 15, 2022. This development is unrelated to her previous case before Circuit Court 10 in Accra. Details of the alleged fraud committed by Agradaa have not been made public.
Nana Agradaa, whose legal name is Patricia Asiedua, is a well-known figure in Ghana's religious and spiritual landscape. She is known for her controversial practices as a traditional priestess, which included the sale of "sika gari," a supposed charm that could multiply money for its users. After her arrest, Agradaa announced her conversion to Christianity and has since been preaching on her television channel, Thunder TV.
Agradaa's arrest and subsequent conversion have been met with mixed reactions from Ghanaians. While some have praised her for renouncing her former practices, others have criticized her for exploiting vulnerable people and only turning to Christianity after being caught committing fraud.
The case against Nana Agradaa highlights the need for increased accountability and regulation of religious and spiritual practices in Ghana. Many Ghanaians, especially those in rural areas, are vulnerable to exploitation by unscrupulous individuals claiming to possess supernatural powers or connections to the divine. The government and civil society organizations should work together to protect vulnerable people from such exploitation and promote transparency and accountability in religious and spiritual practices.
