Charismatic scammer and fraudster Patricia Asiedua otherwise known as Nana Agradaa has been convicted by an Accra Circuit Court after a court trial in which she pleaded guilty to all charges.
She is expected to serve 3 years in jail with hard labour should she default in payment of a fine imposed on her.

The Ghanaian Self-styled priestess turned evangelist was granted bail after being kept in police custody following her “Sika Gari” scam on her TV stations.
Earlier, a joint team of the Police and the National Security Intelligence Operatives, and the National Communication Authority stormed the premises of the two television stations owned by the priestess and closed them down for operating without licenses.
The raid came along with the arrest of Nana Agradaa, the owner of the stations for the advertisement of her “Sika Gari” scam. She claims that her personal gods multiply money after some rituals have been performed.
