The founder of the Heaven Way church, Patricia Asiedua aka ‘Nana Agradaa’, has been denied bail by the Accra Circuit Court.
Her case involving an alleged money doubling scam has, therefore, been adjourned to Thursday, October 13, 2022.
‘Nana Agradaa’ was arrested on Sunday, October 9, following allegations of scam, among others, levelled against her by some members of her church and the public.
The Police in a statement said, “Anyone who is a victim of the alleged money doubling scam should report to the Accra Regional Police Command for further action and to assist in the investigation.”
Some members of the Heaven Way Church in Weija accused their leader of cleverly deceiving them and running away with their monies.
According to the aggrieved congregants, Nana Agradaa promised to double their monies through her special spiritual endowments.
Based on this assurance, the affected worshippers said they were convinced to give her various sums, in expectation of multiplied outcomes.
But in a series of viral videos on social media on Saturday, the church members who reposed confidence in the recently converted fetish priestess said their monies have not been doubled, but ‘Nana Agradaa’ was nowhere to be found.
I am innocent
Meanwhile, ‘Nana Agradaa’ has denied allegations of defrauding some members of her church.
She said those allegations are untrue.
The self-styled pastor said she only shared money with her church members to help boost their businesses.
According to her, on the night [Saturday, October 8] that she shared the money, others gave offerings, as is done in all churches in the country.
She explained that allowing them (church members) to give an offering in church does not amount to defrauding them.
“Reverend Mama pat, I came out to tell Ghanaians that I will be gifting cash to my church members for them to use for work.
“So whoever that wanted to get some, should come and accept Jesus as your Saviour and also write your name to become a church member, and then you start coming to church.
“So if I have done my all night and shared my money to my church members and those of you that wrote your names late, you didn’t get some, I have not offended you or defrauded you. So I have not defrauded anyone.,” she said in a short video on Sunday, October 9, before her arrest.
