One of the alleged victims of the former traditionalist, Nana Agradaa’s Sika Gari money doubling scheme has placed a heavy curse on the now repented priestess. In a message sent to YEN.com.gh, the man by the name Tetey Tekutei invoked curses on the former traditional priestess. He claimed that Nana Agradaa while practicing at her shrine, defrauded him of an amount of GHC7,200 and was asking for that money to be returned. He said should the former priestess fail to return his money, she was not going to “see the earth”.
He went on to add that no one including an Imam could save her if she does not return his money in full. Aggrieved Tetey Tekutei said: “This my message is to you NaNa Agradaa as my money you defrauded me, amount of 7200 Ghana cedis. I want my money back other you may not live and see the earth. Nobody can save you, no sheik or Iman can save you.” The aggrieved man was reacting to an article YEN.com.gh posted about the alleged victims of Nana Agradaa’s sika gari scheme.
