Internet and data service provider, K-NET has threatened to remove from its Direct-to-Home (DTH) platforms, channels promoting the activities of scammers, spiritualists, money doublers, and fraudsters.

This caution follows the alleged killing of a 10 year-old boy by juveniles believed to be influenced by money ritual content in the media.

The statement  reminded the channels to abide by the recent Film Classification Public Announcement made by the National Film Authority and backed by the Development and Classification of Film Act 2016 – Act 935.

There has been a raging discussion on the kind of content showed on many of Ghana’s television channels following the murder of a10-year-old boy allegedly by two teenagers at Atia Coca-Cola within the Amanfrom Electoral Area in Kasoa.

Reports say the two teenagers planned to use the deceased for money ritual after contacting a traditional priest.

Many are of the view that the teenagers conceived the thought of money ritual after watching adverts and programmes by traditional and spiritualists who claim to have the ability to make people instantly rich.

According to police documents, the two teenagers were inspired to carry out the crime after watching a spiritualist on TV talking about how he could make people rich.

There have been calls for  regulation of media content to address some of these excesses.
