Evangelist Mama Patricia Asiedu widely known as Nana Agradaa, has taken it upon herself to challenge the Nogokpo shrine following the request issued by the elders of Nogokpo town for Archbishop Charles Agyinasare to appear before them over specific comments he made about their community.
The founder of the Perez Chapel and Agyinasare ministries during a church program in May had described the town as the headquarters of demons in the region.
“Nogokpo is the demonic headquarters of the Volta Region. We only have not said it but the second night, I made Bishop Yaw Adu talk about witchcraft and we disgraced the witches and the wizards. When we were driving from Aflao to Agbozome, immediately we got to Nogopko, Bishop Yaw Adu’s four-wheel drive, the tyres came out from under the car,” He said.
Responding to the comments, elders of the town of Nogokpo, noted for its shrine dedicated to a god of thunder, summoned Rev Agyinasare, accusing him of defaming their town.
They have therefore called on the National Peace Council to “help Archbishop Charles Agyinasare appear before the council of elders of the Nogokpo community within 14 days for amicable resolution”.
At the moment Rev Agyinasare and his church, Perez Chapel International have initiated a week of fasting, seeking divine intervention in this unfolding dispute and details are scanty on whether he will honour the summons.
However, Nana Agradaa, who herself was once a fetish priestess condemned the summons during a Sunday sermon at the Heaven Way Church in Weija.
“Yesterday I heard on the news that they were coming for our father, Agyinasare, and I said, why didn’t they bring it my way? They would have known the difference. Where we find loose clothing is where we can easily tear it,” she shared
According to Evangelist Mama, the Nogokpo elders had targeted Agyinasare because they felt he was weak spiritually and could bully him.
“Bring your attention to Heaven Way Champion. I will document myself breaking down the gods with a camera on me so they know there is power in God that works,” she boldly declared.
Agradaa emphasized her willingness to confront any challenges, stating that she would forcefully enter the Nogokpo temple and record the confrontation to showcase her own strength.
Agradaa also took the opportunity to debunk the idea that lesser gods such as Nogokpo, Antoa Nyama, or Anyanta had some genuine power.
“I am saying, if they like, they should bring their schemes my way. We have stood in this room to say there is no power in gods and mentioned names like Nogokpo, Antoa Nyamaa, Ayanta, and Kwaku Firi. “Why don’t they bring it my way? We will show them that we are the masters of the greatest,” she added.
