Agradaa’s bail varied, but counsel fears more challenges ahead

All things being equal, the Founder of Heaven Way Champion International Ministry, Patricia Asieduaa Oduro Koranteng, might be visiting the beach again to purify her soul, after her application for variation succeeded at an Accra Circuit Court on Friday, November 11, 2022.

The court reviewed her bail bond to GH¢100,000 and five sureties who have fixed place of abode, as well as permanent place of doing business, all within the jurisdiction of the court. She was further ordered to report every Monday and Friday to the police station.

The review application followed a constant accusation by the accused that the prosecution was deliberately delaying the execution of the bail with stringent measures.

However, counsel for the accused, Paul Assibi Abariga, was apprehensive of the latter part of the new bail conditions, claiming it would further delay the execution and, therefore, prayed the court for reconsideration, but his appeal was refused.

Previously, Nana Agradaa was slapped with GH¢50,000.00 bail with three sureties who were to be civil servants, earning not less that GH¢2,000.00 a month.

According to her counsel, the prosecution was using verification of the sureties pay slips as a caveat to punish his client, hence, prayed the court for self-recognisance bail, since she was a known figure.

The prosecuting officer, DSP Sylvester Asare, on the other hand, argued that the prosecution could not be faulted for delaying the execution of the bail process, since it took the accused’s family almost two or so weeks to submit the documents for the bail execution.

He said the bail was granted on October 8, but the accused family submitted their documents on November 1. Meanwhile, the prosecution, in order to check the authenticity of the documents, forwarded the pay slips to the Controller and Accountant-General for verification just the next day, November 2, 2022.


Mama Pat has pleaded not guilty to one count of charlatanic advertisement and six counts of defrauding by false pretences.

Brief Facts

According to the prosecution, the persons allegedly defrauded by Patricia Asieduaa were Yaa Bremah, a Trader from Ahenbubuanu Tafo, Kumasi; Emmanuel Kumi from Zenu Ashaiman; George Boateng from Obuasi; Grace Forson, a Hairdresser from Swedru; Mary Arthur, a Farmer from Takoradi, and Patricia Ankamah, a trader from Sunyani.

He said Nana Agradaa was reported to have, on October 5, 2022, advertised and invited on Today’s Television and other social media platforms that she was able to double any amount of money an individual gave her.

Thus, the accused, per the said advert invited members of the public to attend all-night service at her church for the alleged money doubling, for which the complainants and over one thousand others attended the said all night service and handed over sums of monies to her.

He added that the police commenced investigations into the matter and arrested the accused on October 9, 2022. During interrogations she admitted to the story of the complainants.
