A joint team of police and National Security Intelligence operatives in collaboration with the National Communications Authority (NCA), have moved to shut down the offices of Thunder TV and Ice1 TV.

According to a police sitrep, the security officers and NCA officials on Tuesday stormed the premises of the two satellite television stations that were transmitting without licenses at Kasoa in the Central Region

“The team arrested the offenders among which included the owner of Thunder TV, Patience Asiedua, popularly known as Nana Agradaa and seized two pieces of equipment each used in the illegal transmission from both premises.

“Nana Agradaa advertises her “Sika Gari” on her TV station, which she claims is her personal god that multiplies money with some rituals she makes,” the police said.

According to the sitrep, she admitted to the illegality and is currently in custody assisting with further investigations.

The influx of unregulated television stations on air have led to promotion of certain content which may affect public order, public morality and the rights and reputation of others.

As such, efforts are underway to rid the system of this canker and reduce overcrowding on the country’s air waves.
