Ghanaians are poking fun at Nana Agradaa, the self-styled Accra-based fetish priestess who was arrested today.
Following the murder of a 10-year old by two teenagers at Ofaakor in Accra, state security implemented operations to stop it from happening in the future.
A police report stated that the two teenagers were inspired by what they saw on Television
This revelation by the police led to calls for the state to close down the Television stations that traffic in supposed money doubling and rituals.
State security has since closed Thunder TV and Ice 1 TV owned by spiritualist Nana Agradaa, also known as Patricia Asiedu.
A ghanareport publication states that Agradaa has cheated a lot of people under the guise of doubling their money. The report adds that the National Communication Authority (NCA) has revoked Thunder TV's license to operate.
In other news, the two teenagers 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. The counsel for the accused persons, Lawyer Samuel Atuah, said since the law states in Article 19 (2) that an accused person is innocent until proven guilty, the court should consider that and grant his clients bail.
