Nana Agradaa ‘s trial continues today
Self-proclaimed evangelist Patricia Asiedua is expected in court this morning on charges of fraud by false pretense and quack advertising.
The Senior Pastor of Heaven Way International Church, also known as Nana Agradaa, is on trial for his alleged involvement in a money doubling scam.
The district court has so far denied her bail three times in two separate cases.
The controversial pastor, who is in two separate court cases with the police, attracted media attention with her gospel tunes immediately after arriving at the courthouse.
A traditional priestess turned evangelist was arrested a few days ago for allegedly defrauding members of her Heaven Way Church in Weija.
In the first case, the police summoned Nana Agradao to court on 10 October 2022 after her arrest.
The court sent her to police custody to appear again on October 13.
The police produced the accused in court on the said date where she was remanded in custody to appear again on October 17, 2022.
“In the second case, the accused was brought before the court again on Friday, October 14, 2022 and was remanded in police custody to appear again on October 24, 2022,” police said in a statement, but did not disclose their charges.
I didn’t cheat anyone; I was just doing fundraising – Nana Agradaa
Self-proclaimed evangelist Patricia Asiedua has denied cheating or defrauding members of her church.
As she explained in an earlier video, she said she actually invited church members to a service last Friday and gave out money to help them with their various businesses.

She said she also invited anyone interested in helping to come to the church on Friday (October 7, 2022), convert to Christianity and become a member of the church.
She said fundraising was also underway last Friday through a bid.
And so if the new members who were in the church for the first time and wrote their names, offered money to support the church and did not receive anything in return, they should count on the fact that as new members their right time will surely come. therefore, it should not be attributed to fraud.
She disagreed with the contention that the offering of GH¢1,000, GH¢800, GH¢700 and coins by members who attended the service and willingly contributed should be interpreted as fraud.
