- Anas has started an "I am Anas" campaign on social media
- This social media challenge was after photos of him got leaked by Kennedy Agyapong
- The Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) is calling on Ghanaians to protect the image of the investigative journalist
Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, seems to have used Kennedy Agyapong's move to release pictures as an opportunity to sell his ideology on social media.
Just hours after the maverick politician released photos of the journalist on his television network, Anas took to Twitter to start the 'I AM challenge'.
This challenge saw thousands of fans post pictures of themselves claiming to be the investigative journalist.
So far, Anas has not confirmed whether or not these pictures by the politician are his but popular presenter, Nana Aba Anamoah has confirmed the pictures and even bashed the television network.
It could mean that the entire social media campaign by Anas is meant to create duplicates on his exact identity.
As it stands now, the Ghana Journalist Association (GFA) has kicked against moves to release the photos of Anas as president of the association, Affail Monney, is calling for the investigative journalist to be protected.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas has been respected as the most feared investigative journalist in Africa. Having used deep investigative skills to uncover grave cases of corruption in Ghana and across the African continent.
The investigative journalist uncovered so many corrupt practices from the Tema Ports, Judiciary, Police department and now the Ghana Football Association.
So many public officials are not happy at Anas especially when they believe he is not just encroaching on the privacy of people but also using unauthorized means to retrieve information.
There is no doubt that Anas feels unsafe. Just the fact that he covers his face with masks and beads and even visits places and conferences in heavy security is enough proof that the Tiger Eye journo is always unsafe.
So many powerful officials have stood against what Anas Aremeyaw has been doing. There is no denying the fact that so many people want to clear Anas off their path.
He is an investigative journalist and would do everything possible to get in his way and if possible annihilate him. It is for this reason that Anas would always have to watch his steps just so he does not risk losing everything he spent years building.
