Every day, new people come out with new details of how popular Sowutuom-based priestess Patricia Asiedu popularly known as Nana Agradaa has scammed them under the pretext of helping them with money rituals, reports.

Over 15 young men have reportedly taken her case to the Sowutuom Police but no action has been taken.

There are reports that the fetish priestess has the police in the area 'in her pocket' as she uses proceeds of her fraudulent activities on innocent young men and women as payment.

Some don’t report after they have been defrauded because they are too shy or feel humiliated after the entire episode with Nana Agradaa who continues her operation to this day, scamming more and more people by enticing them with her adverts on her own TV station.

The priestess advertises her “Sika Gari” and says all interested persons just need Ghc1,000 to get more money to flow to them. She does this with the assistance of her ex-Kumawood actor, Big Akwes.

Nana Agradaa claims the ‘Sika Gari’ she owned is her personal god that multiplies money with some rituals which she makes.

A victim of Nana Agradaa alleged that after making his way to the Sowutuom location where the self-styled priestess operates from, he was requested to hand over the GH¢1000 he had brought to acquire the “Sika Gari” which he immediately did.

After collecting his money, Nana Agradaa told him to go and bring an additional GH¢15,000 before he can get the sika gari.

She noted that she will bless the additional money for him when he brings it to get the sika gari. She said failure to bring the additional GH¢15,000 means certain death for the young man, which is how she allegedly blackmails her victims, many of whom leave her operation room in fear.

Realizing he had been played, the young man asked that his GH¢1,000 cedis be given back to him since he was no longer interested in the scheme but Nana Agradaa refused and ordered him to be pushed out by her macho boys who were employed to beat and manhandle “headstrong customers” like him apparently.

According to him, he later saw many angry people outside who were afraid to talk because they had been threatened with death or beatings should they misbehave or make noise to alert other would-be victims.

Checks from the Sowutuom Police Station shows countless reports of fraud have been lodged against the self-styled priestess without any action by the police with several reports suggesting the police there have been compromised as it is the police who advise her victims “not to waste their time” over Agradaa if she has taken their money.

Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong had threatened to deal with Nana Agradaa after he was done with Obinim last year before the elections.

This was after several victims of the fake priestess petitioned him to help them. However, Kennedy Agyapong abandoned the entire crusade after his party allegedly pleaded with him.
