General News of Sunday, 27 May 2018
Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper has confessed that he has a weakness for lovely voluptuous ladies and likely to fall, if baited with any woman that fits the bill.
“I thought you were going to talk about ‘the apple’… You can catch me, maybe, there. It’s true. I have weakness there. So, it’s possible. … If it’s a woman who comes and is beautiful and has assets, I may fall for it. …And I am being honest. My wife is watching. When I get home there’ll be some few canes”, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako said to Multi TV’s News File host, Samson Lardy Anyenini, on Saturday, 26 May 2018, during a debate about entrapment, the method used by the veteran journalist’s protégé, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, in busting wrongdoers in his undercover journalism practice – which Mr Anyenini argues was bound to catch virtually anybody who finds himself in such a trap.
Although Mr Baako’s use of his own weaknesses as an example buttressed Mr Anyenini’s point about entrapment, the senior journalist nonetheless counter-argued that people with integrity would almost always escape such a trap.
According to him, Anas does not entrap people out of the blue, but does it only after receiving consistent reports or complaints of wrongdoing about certain people, which trigger his modus operandi to confirm the reports.
In his latest exposé, president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyatakyi, is captured using the president’s name to peddle influence in his attempt to clinch some investor deals, for which he was given wads of dollars.
The president, after being privy to that bit of the yet-to-be aired exposé, reported the matter to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service for investigations. Mr Nyantakyi was subsequently arrested, interrogated and later granted bail. He is cooperating with the CID in the investigations.
