Famous scam artist Madam Agradaa, known as Patricia Asiedua, but who now calls herself Dr Patricia Oduro Koranteng, also known as Okomfo Nana Agradaa, has struck again.

Agradaa staged a show when she set up her church

This time she has scammed hundreds of people, members of her church to whom she had promised free money.

One of Agradaa’s latest victims

The predatory Madam Agradaa owns and operates a church called Heavens Champion International Ministry at Kasoa.

On Friday, members of her church went agog when Madam Agradaa failed to live to promises to them that she would give them vast sums of monies, if they turned over their monies to her.

At her press conference she confessed her sins and announced a life in Christ…

Explaining their troubles to a social media influencer who first broke the news on Facebook (follow on

Another victim

Stated one victim, “She has collected our money. She has collected sums ranging between five million (sic) to then million (sic). She has collected large sums of money from many people. But then she failed to give them the money she promised to give us, which has led to this problem.”

The person said that Madam Agradaa had promised to share money on the Friday, but failed to do so.

“She collected all of money. Even our transportation money, so we are unable to go back,” he said.

Anopther victim stated, “You these men of God and the things you are doing in this country… You should be steady. Why would you invite somebody to your church only to dupe the person?”

Other victims rained curses on Agradaa and pastors, praying that the curses pursue them for generations to come.

Before she became a priestess virtually overnight, Agradaa, who now calls herself Dr Patricia Oduro Koranteng, was a famous con-artist who claimed that she could double money for investors. She was well-known for using thugs to assault her victims who dared to challenge her antics at Sowutuom in Accra, where she had an operational centre.

She was only arrested by the police after a major media campaign, but was let go by the police after she claimed she was now a Christian.

ARRESTED

On April 21, 2021 it was published that Madam Agradaa, who also calls herself Nana Agradaa, was arrested at about 2200hrs on 20/04/2021, by a joint team of Police and National Security Intelligence Operatives, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority, after they 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 Region
The 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
was advertising her “Sika Gari” show on her TV station, which she claims is her personal god that multiplies money with some rituals she makes.

She admitted this illegality at the time was placed in custody assist to assist with further investigations.

CHEAP PROSECUTION AND CHEAP JUDGMENT

On June 17, 2021, Graphic.com.gh reported that an Accra Circuit Court has sentenced Patricia Asiedua, aka Nana Agradaa, to a fine of GH¢36,000 for operating a television channel without license and displaying charlatanic materials.

In default, Nana Agradaa will serve three years imprisonment in hard labour on the charge of operating a television channel without licence.

On displaying charlatanic materials, for which she should pay a fine of GH¢10,000, she would serve a year in prison should she default.

The sentences are, however, to run concurrently.

Plea changed

The court, presided over by Mr Emmanuel Essandoh, convicted Agradaa on her own plea.

She had earlier pleaded not guilty, but changed it to guilty.

Arrest

Nana Agradaa was arrested in April this year after a joint team of officers from the police and National Security, in collaboration with the National Communications Authority, raided the premises of her two TV stations at Kasoa in the Central Region.

Nana Agradaa was said to have admitted to the illegality, and was placed in police custody initially to assist with further investigations.

The team also seized equipment used in the transmission of television signals from both stations.

Her arrest was part of an operation that led to the closure of 49 television stations in the country on a single day.

Before her arrest, hundreds of her vcitims had cases pending at various police stations against her. She was not prosecuted on even one case.

CONVERSION TO CHRIST

On April 29, within hours of being granted police bail, Madam Agradaa announced that she was now a Christian and a priest. She later paraded several men and women of God in front of her home at Sowutuom and burnt some pieces of wood she claimed were her gods.

With her recent activities, it remains to be seen whether it was these gods that led her wayward, or she herself is the trouble.
