- Anas' 'Number 12' exposé may not be shown to the general public on June 6 as announced
- YEN.com.gh has gathered that some people are going to court to stop Anas from showing the video
- These people are believed to have been captured in very bad ways in the video
The much-anticipated premiere of the latest piece of work from award-winning investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas may not come off as expected.
According to unconfirmed information reaching YEN.com.gh, some powerful people are planning to seek a court injunction to stop Anas from showing the exposé to the general public.
Titled "Number 12", the exposé is a collaborative work between Anas' Tiger Eye PI team and the BBC.
Originally scheduled to be shown on June 6, it is said to be the results of two years of investigations largely focused on corruption in football in the country which has been captured in 10 hours of video footage.
Excerpts of the video which were shown privately to President Nana Akufo-Addo has led to the arrest of Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Nyantakyi, according to the presidency, was spotted in the video soliciting bribes from some football investors in the name of President Akufo-Addo.
As scandalous as Nyantakyi's arrest may be, those close to Anas have said that it is just a tip of the iceberg.
In all, about 60 people including politicians, football administrators, referees, among others, are said to have been caught misconducting themselves in the video.
It appears that those trying to stop the video from being shown are among the 60 individuals captured in the video.
It is not yet known what the arguments of those wanting to stop Anas will be in court as a person seeking such an injunction must prove that he or she is captured in the video before the court will make any such order.
This is not the first time an Anas exposé has caused such 'confusion' in Ghana.
It will be recalled that his investigations into corruption in Ghana's judiciary also received vehement protests from those concerned for the invasion of their privacy. There were some experts who also accused Anas of ethical violations.
But for the ordinary Ghanaian, no matter the circumstances leading to the affected people being caught, it was good for the fight against corruption and it is in this same vein that many are viewing the latest piece from Anas.
