Outspoken private legal practitioner Ace Ankomah has batted editor of The Herald Newspaper Larry Dogbe for false allegations levelled against the former.
In a long emotional and upfront post written in the form of a prayer by Mr. Ankomah on his Facebook wall, he indicated that he would sue Mr. Dogbe siphoning him of all his money.
“If this guy, should ever try this again, may Your word give me strength to teach him some lessons in basic decency in court, and when I am through with him, may the court bailiffs enforce the judgment in some of the most painful ways ever done so that at the end, he will have neither food on his table nor clothes on his back, and have neither a roof over his head nor money in his pocket.”
Early on Larry Dogbe published a story about Ace Ankomah alleging that he drafted the controversial Special Prosecutor’s Bill- which has been withdrawn from parliament by the executive – at an expensive amount. The lawyer denied the claims and descended heavily on Larry Dogbe for publishing lies about him.
But in a subsequent publication by the Herald newspaper on July 31, Mr. Dogbe continued with his allegations saying more details had emerged on Ace Ankomah’s involvement in the Special Prosecutor’s Bill.
They revealed that per their investigations, they realised the lawyer has been a resource person and lead advocate for the impending law and at a public event held at the Alisa Hotel, he bragged about his access to President Akufo-Addo and eloquently spoke about the government’s commitment to urgently see the Bill passed into law.
Ace Ankomah retaliated to the said publication with a prayer on his Facebook wall on August 4, 2017.
Below is the lawyer’s prayer for Larry Dogbe
I pray for just one thing for Larry Dogbey: that You give him his own Larry Dogbey who will try to do to him everything that Larry Dogbey has tried to do to me, but failed.
May this other Larry Dogbey obtain his number from other places and call and ask to be his friend, expressing fake admiration of him and his stance on Ghanaian matters.
May this other Larry Dogbey, for the next several months, chat with him on several occasions, complaining among other things of how his own party has neglected him but is giving his media friends from the same stable more adverts that they give to his paper.
May this Larry Dogbey feign interest in Larry Dogbey’s family and ask questions about how to make it in life and to become successful.
May, when this Larry Dogbey also realizes that he would go nowhere with the fake friendship, and that definitely there would be no pecuniary advantage, be unable to stay under his masquerade, and then show his hand by writing a first wicked story that will seek to take food from off his table, clothes from off his back, roof from over his head, and money from his pocket.
Dear God, my Larry Dogbey failed, but may this Larry Dogbey succeed. But may my Larry Dogbey say to his Larry Dogbey, what I said to mine “I have always known and learned not to keep a snake ???? like you in my bosom.”
And afterwards this may this other Larry Dogbey, go wandering in Waterless places, come back and find Larry Dogbey as he has always been, and then bring back 7 other Larry Dogbeys, even more wicked than he, to start that process all over again.
Dear God, Your word teaches me to forgive and so I have forgiven, THIS ONE TIME, praying that Larry Dogbey will receive, all that he tried but failed to do to me.
If this guy, should ever try this again, may Your word give me strength to teach him some lessons in basic decency in court, and when I am through with him, may the court bailiffs enforce the judgment in some of the most painful ways ever done so that at the end, he will have neither food on his table nor clothes on his back, and have neither a roof over his head nor money in his pocket.
Out of forgiveness, I pray that every evil he wished on me will return to him in good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.
I end with Your word that ‘the righteous hate what is false, but the wicked make themselves a stench and bring shame on themselves.’
