Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has described how investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas goes about his imvestigative works.
While discussing the latest and yet-to-be-released work of the Tiger Eye PI man on Adom TV’s Morning Show, “Badwam” Tuesday, the maverick politician took pains to lay bare the methods employed by Anas, describing them as unethical and unlawful.
He also went on to accuse the ace undercover journalist of deliberating suppressing some of his works after he has been paid by those caught in such videos.
“It is only when money changes hands that he doesn’t bring it [out]. I’m challenging Anas today about he why didn’t bring that video out? He wanted to bring the NDC government down, but they were smart, they played local politics, they are afraid of the guy [but] NPP is not afraid of this man [Anas]”, alleged.
“I will strip him naked for Ghanaians to see who Anas is. And when we finish today, I’ll bring you more evidence and pictures. I’ll start by showing them on my TV station so that Kweku Baako can sue me”, he added.
Giving details of how Anas operates, Mr Agyapong said “He [Anas] uses boys called Daniel, Desmond and Ahmed. The Dubai man he used to set up the NDC people is called Ridwan. His modus operandi is to lure the people, pretend to be an investor, take you to a hotel or an apartment fitted with secret cameras while he hides in one bedroom as Ahmed communicates with him via texts about what questions to ask as they interact with whoever is asking you questions.
“He coaches the guy on what to say. Sometimes Ahmed excuses himself to use the washroom but sneaks into Anas’ hideout for more coaching. The ‘Mahama Boys’ he set up, he should bring the video out. Why didn’t he bring it out”, he questioned further.
Meanwhile, the latest documentary dubbed “Number 12” will be shown on June 6 at the International Conference Centre.
