The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has debunked claims that his protégé Anas Aremeyaw Anas, connived with the wife of late Abuakwa North legislator, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, to sell a house of the deceased located in London, UK.
This follows Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong’s attacks against Anas over his investigative journalist style of journalism. Mr Agyapong is alleging that Anas has no moral right to expose corruption when he is unclean himself.
He went further to accuse Anas of having an affair with Ivy Danquah-Adu, an accusation the widow has refuted.
Mr Baako who was a guest on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo on Wednesday 6 June 2018 said: “I’m not against anybody who criticises Anas’ methods or even accuses Anas of being corrupt, I cannot. All I say is that [there] is free speech but provide evidence to back it”.
Mr Baako said: “The latest accusation was that Anas had connived with JB Danquah’s widow to sell a property of the late MP located in London”.
Mr Baako disclosed that after his checks it emerged that the property is on “mortgage” and “the real owners are called Santander”.
“As at 4th June, that property is still in the name of the MP and mortgages are being paid. The last mortgage was paid I think two months ago, £250 or so. That building is intact,” he said as he showed documents to back his claims.
Meanwhile, the Number 12 undercover documentary which the MP wants rejected is set to be premiered today at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC).
The investigative project has generated a lot of interest, especially as president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, was captured using President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s name to lure investors for his personal gain.
Mr Nyantakyi has since been under investigation after the president reported him to the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police after he was given the opportunity to watch excerpts of the video.
Deputy Minister of Roads and Highways, Anthony Karbo, was also mentioned and has met the CID in line with investigations.
According to Mr Baako, the documentary captures over 100 referees, footballers and football administrators involved in one form of graft or another.
