Patience Asiedua, also known as Nana Agradaa, was remanded into detention legally for the next three days by an Accra Circuit Court.
Agradaa was remanded in custody after the court, presided over by His Honor Samuel Bright Acquah, heard her attorneys’ request for bail and the prosecution’s opposition.
The court stated that no one knew what she might think of next given her prior experience with the law governing “sika gari” and the current money-doubling scheme.
The “repented” Fetish priest had earlier entered a not-guilty plea to six counts of defrauding by false pretenses and Charlatanic advertising.
Following accusations of a money-doubling scheme made against her by some members of the public, Nana Agradaa was taken into custody.
This follows the release of a popular social media video of victims talking about their loss.
“Anyone who is a victim of the alleged money-doubling scam should report to the Accra Regional Police Command for further action to assist the investigation,” the police stated in a statement.
“The investigation was initiated following reports that have come to the attention of the Police on the matter.”
“We would like to urge anyone with information that can assist the investigation to report to the Accra Regional Police Command at Accra Central close to the COCOBOD building.” the statement continued.
A number of the victims said they visited Nana Agradaa’s church after seeing her advertise on television that she would be doubling donations during Friday’s all-night service.
