It has emerged that member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, published various pictures of innocent men who are far identical to Anas Aremeyaw Anas. The recent victim is a PhD student at the University of Ghana who had his photo on Net 2 Television purported to be the investigative journalist.
Petr Nuama Asare is so angry about how his picture is among a pack circulating on social media supposedly to be photos of an investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
The student is planning to sue Kennedy Agyapong especially when he fears his security has been compromised.Meanwhile, Kennedy Agyapong says he wishes death for himself should he fail in premiering what he believes to be a video of Anas taking a $100,000 bribe from a businessman.
Kennedy Agyapong has dared God to kill him should he fail to show the video which he says will reveal the true Anas.
“I will show Anas confessing to a state Attorney that he has taken $100,000 bribe if I don’t show may the living God kill me. Let Anas premiere his (investigative video on the June 6), I will also premiere my video titled “ WHO WATCHES THE WATCHMAN, so he should be ready.
It could mean that the entire social media campaign by Anas is meant to create duplicates on his exact identity. As it stands now, the Ghana Journalist Association (GFA) has kicked against moves to release the photos of Anas as president of the association, Affail Monney, is calling for the investigative journalist to be protected.Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been respected as the most feared investigative journalist in Africa. Having used deep investigative skills to uncover grave cases of corruption in Ghana and across the African continent. The investigative journalist uncovered so many corrupt practices from the Tema Ports, Judiciary, Police department and now the Ghana Football Association. So many public officials are not happy at Anas especially when they believe he is not just encroaching on the privacy of people but also using unauthorized means to retrieve information.
There is no doubt that Anas feels unsafe. Just the fact that he covers his face with masks and beads and even visits places and conferences in heavy security is enough proof that the Tiger Eye journo is always unsafe.
