In a statement, the GJA said it has become necessary for Anas and his family to be protected because some people have been tracking him with the intention of harming him.

The Association also condemned persons who posted pictures of other people they claimed were Anas with his face uncovered.

According to them, such an action must be stopped because it could put the lives of persons in the pictures in great danger.

Several pictorial images have been posted online, television and on social media. These images, which are not the real identity of Anas, tend to put the lives of other persons at risk and this must stop forthwith. The GJA finds these developments extremely disturbing and highly unfortunate.”

“We, therefore, urge the Ghana Police Service, Bureau of National Investigations and other security agencies to, as a matter of urgency, and in utmost national interest, provide a 24-hour protection for Anas and all his interests, including his family and properties. The security agencies should not allow aggrieved and disgruntled individuals to endanger the life of this patriotic citizen of Ghana, who, at a very young age, has rendered very invaluable services to the nation,” the statement said.

It added: “We appreciate the fact that investigative pieces of this nature always arouse passion, emotions, anger and even hatred. However, regardless of one’s feelings, whether good or ill, under no circumstances must one deviate from the rule of law to tread on the path of impunity and engage in an assassination mission. Instead one must resort to the law courts to seek redress to anything one finds untoward in such matters.

Anas is once again set to premier another explosive piece on June 6, titled ‘Number 12’.
