In the year 2015, Amidu, popularly referred to as Citizen Vigilante, allegedly attacked the integrity of the ace journalist, claiming he had been compromised.

The astute lawyer was reported to have later stated that former President John Atta-Mills recruited Anas to help collaborate with security personnel to investigate the Judiciary and Parliament.

He allegedly added that upon the completion of investigations, the results of the Judiciary investigation were released, but that of Parliament were suppressed.

“An anti-corruption activist or journalist must be a man of the highest integrity himself! He cannot be a government agent under any excuse,” Amidu argued.

He further noted that if it is necessary for the Judiciary to be exposed for their dealings, then so be it, as it would be unfair to hide clear evidence of corruption.
