Following the death of the 10-year-old who was murdered in cold blood by two teenagers at Ofaakor in Accra, state security has decided to act in order to avert any future occurrence.
Police probe of the two teenagers revealed that they were incited to do that after they saw it being broadcast on television.
This revelation by the police sparked a lot of public outcry with calls for the appropriate quarters to clamp down on these stations that boldly advertise the act of spiritualism, money doubling, and money rituals.
In view of this, state security has clamped down on two TV stations; Thunder TV and Ice 1 TV, which belongs to spiritualist Patricia Asiedu, popularly known as Nana Agradaa.
Nana Agradaa is a self-styled Accra-based fetish priestess who has been a reference point on numerous fraudulent activities in the name of spiritualism.
The team arrested the offenders, including the owner Nana Agradaa and seized two (2) equipment each used in the illegal transmission from both premises.

The two media houses are the first amongst many on the state’s list of targeted raids to take place today.
According to a report filed by theghanareport, Nana Agradaa has swindled a lot of people under the pretext of doubling their money for them through her ‘Sika Gari’ ritual concept.
Nana Agradaa’s Thunder TV had its authorisation revoked.
The report stated that on March 24, 2020, the National Communications Authority (NCA) stated that it revoked Nana Agradaa’s Thunder TV's authorisation.
Ice 1 TV, on the other hand reportedly continued to operate even after a written directive was sent to them on June 17, 2020, to stop operations after their authorisation expired on February 26, 2020.
In other news, the two accused teenagers who were alleged to have killed the 10-year-old boy at Ofaakor in Kasoa have been denied bail by the Ofaakor District Court.
The Magistrate, Samuel Adjei said the court does not have the powers to grant bail at this stage of the case unless the High Court takes such a decision.
