Host of Peace FM’s flagship programme, Kokrooko, Wisdom Kwame Sefa Kayi, has questioned why some Ghanaians are bent on exposing the identity of investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Commenting on the recent impasse between Anas and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Sefa Kayi could not fathom why the legislator is going at every length to tarnish the image of the controversial journalist.
“Why are some people, especially Kennedy Agyapong fighting tooth and nail to expose the real face of Anas. What’s his motive? What is the rationale behind that?
“Assuming without admitting that the pictures put out there is the real face of Anas, what is Ken Agyapong trying to establish?” Sefa Kayi quizzed on his show Wednesday .
The presenter on that score admonished Anas to beef-up his personal security as he could be targeted by some miscreants and hoodlums.
Mr Agyapong has questioned the way and manner Anas conducts his investigations and has also accused the investigative journalist of fraud and blackmail.
The vociferous MP has been on a campaign against Anas insisting that his modus operandi of entrapping people should not be countenanced by Ghanaians.
Anas on his part has dragged Mr Agyapong, to court for defaming him and is asking the High Court to award aggravated damages to the tune of GH¢25 million arising from defamatory materials published by the MP.
The MP has, in the past weeks, been publishing materials in his bid to discredit the investigative journalist, who has released a piece on the rot in Ghana football.
Displeased with the MP’s actions, Anas has, through his lawyer, Mr Kissi Agyebeng, sued Mr Agyapong for the award of general damages for defamation in the defendant’s publications.
