- A man came on Kennedy Agyapong's NET 2 TV to accuse Anas of duping him of $50,000
- Checks, however, suggest that the man identified as Dema Naa, is known scammer who was once caughtby Anas
- His accusations were reportedly supposed to corroborate Ken Agyapong's claims of fraud against Anas
Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong has been on a mission to discredit award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas following the latter's 'Number 12' expose which is set to be premiered from June 6 across the country.
While Anas has been widely commended over his work, Kennedy Agyapong has claimed Anas' methods of "inducement and entrapment" were unfair and self-serving and thus must be stopped.
The outspoken MP who released photos of a man purported to be Anas has described the ace journalist as an extortionist and a criminal who sells his videos to the highest bidder.
According to him, he has video evidence of Anas taking a $100,000 bribe and was going to show it after Anas' premiere.
Kennedy Agyapong's allegations of fraud and corruption against were on Friday, June 1 corroborated on Net 2 TV by man claiming to have been duped by Anas.
Mohammed Hafiz Abdullah Dema Naa claimed on the MP’s television station that Anas had defrauded him of an amount $50,000.
But it looks like Kennedy Agyapong's witness is not one who can ordinarily be taken as a credible witness.
According to a MyNewsGh.com report, Dema Naa has been involved in a series of suspicious dealing over the years
One of Dema Naa's deals, a $5.7 million gold scam, was unravelled by Anas who led the Police to arrest him at somewhere in September 2009.
Then the Chief Executive of Hafred Security and Tarchouse Production, he duped some foreign investors and stashed some of the scam money into a Swiss bank account in Geneva which was uncovered by Anas.
Also, Dema Naa who is a sub-chief in Tamale was, in November 2017, accused by a Chineseman of stealing his black Porsche Cayenne 4×4 vehicle with registration GR 5368-15.
According to the victim who wanted the chief arrested, in August 2017, Dema Naa was in Accra and saw the vehicle parked for sale which he expressed interest in buying.
In the process of test driving to be sure it was not defective, he absconded with it to the Northern Region under the claim that he had to respond to an emergency call from Dakpema Naa Alhassan Mohammed Dawuni and will return later to seal the deal but never returned.
With such a history, Dema Naa is a suspicious character whose testimony, which could well be out of bitterness for Anas, must be taken with a pinch of salt.
