The founder and leader of Heaven Way Champion Ministries, evangelist Patricia Oduro Koranteng, popularly known as Nana Agradaa, has once more been taken into custody by the police.
According to Oman Channel, Agradaa, who is facing many criminal charges in different courts, was detained on January 16, 2023, while making a court appearance before Accra Circuit Court 4.
The court had moved Agradaa’s case from Monday to Friday, January 20, 2023, but the police had already detained her in connection with another case before she could leave the courtroom.
Agradaa can be seen complaining in a video aired by Oman Channel as she is being carried away, despite the fact that the reason for her imprisonment is yet unknown.
“I am going with them (the police) so when you go, tell them that the case with Appiah which is in court was called today, it was adjourned but they are arresting me again because of the case with Appiah,” she is heard giving a the quoted phrase to her family and supporters.
Because Nana Agradaa failed to show up for court last week, the police asked the Accra Circuit Court to issue a bench warrant for her arrest.
On Wednesday, January 10, 2023, at an Accra Circuit Court, Superintendent of Police, Sylvester Asare reported to the court that Nana Agradaa had disobeyed the court’s order since she was granted bail with conditions set by the court, and that it had been challenging to get her to comply with the court’s order.
Evangelist Mama Pat, also known as Nana Agradaa, allegedly refused to cooperate with the police, according to the prosecution. According to the prosecution, a bench warrant issued by the court is the only way to compel the accused to appear in court.
The judge rejected the police’s request, but warned Nana Agradaa’s attorney to counsel their client.
Three Circuit Courts in Accra are hearing three separate lawsuits against Nana Agradaa on distinct allegations of defrauding under false pretenses and charlatanry in the media.
Additionally, she will stand trial in 2020 for her claimed part in the assault on a Prophet Akwasi Appiah, better known as Appiah Biblical.
