Self-acclaimed fetish-priestess-turned-prophetess, Nana Agradaa, is having another brush with the law.
Patricia Asiedua, as she is also known, has been charged for allegedly sharing nude pictures of another prophet, Emmanuel Appiah Fomum.
The prophetess who was arrested and arraigned on February 8 pleaded not guilty before an Accra Circuit Court, presided by Evelyn Asamoah.
Presenting the facts in court Prosecutor, ASP Emmanuel Haligah said that sometime in 2020, Nana Agradaa hosted a programme on her television station, ‘Thunder TV’.
In her company were four others namely; Enock Owusu Kissi, 33, Charles Omane alias One Gig, 39, Emmanuel Kofi Gyasi, 47, and one Andy.
The prosecutor claimed that Nana Agradaa intentionally published naked pictures of prophet Emmanuel on live TV, making a mockery of him.
The Prosecutor told the court that the first accused also intentionally distributed intimate images of the complainant to a witness via WhatsApp.
He added that the programme was also streamed live on Youtube and Facebook. A witness saw it and informed the complainant, Prophet Emmanuel, of what they had seen.
When the prophet reported the issue to the police, all the accused persons with the exception of Andy were arrested for investigation.
The prosecutor informed the court that the Police retrieved the intimate images of Prophet Emmanuel which were shared by Nana Agradaa.
Also, the programme was played back to all the accused persons who identified themselves in the video.
ASP Haligah said that subsequently the other accused persons Enock Owusu Kissi, a media Practitioner residing at Weija Charles Omane, a businessman at Nungua, Emmanuel Kofi Gyasi, a TV presenter at Nungua, and one Andy were charged.
They were charged with abetment of crime namely; non-consensual sharing of an intimate image. Although the three were arrested, Andy is currently at large.
Kissi and Omane who were present in court pleaded not guilty. But, Emmanuel Kofi Gyasi was absent.
They have all been granted bail with the sum of GHS100,000 with three sureties each. They are expected to reappear on March 8, 2023.
