- Chairman of the National Media Commission, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh, has defended Kennedy Agyapong for exposing Ahmed
- According to him, it was inappropriate for people to condemn the Assin Central MP for the death of Anas' partner
The Chairman of the National Media Commission, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh, has defended the maverick member of Parliament of Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, for flaunting the picture of the slain undercover journalist on television, few months before his killing.
The NMC chair said, the fact that the Assin Central MP exposed the picture does not make him culpable.
According to him, it was not appropriate for people to condemn Kennedy on the basis that he exposed the identity of the investigative reporter – who worked with celebrated journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Speaking on the StarrFM morning show, the NMC boss said the matter should be looked at in different perspectives.
He said: “you cannot just condemn somebody merely because he exposed the photograph of another person, you must understand the circumstances of where he was also coming from."
“We must learn to look at things from certain perspectives. The fact that the photograph was released was not criminal. That he promised to reward anybody who might accost this gentleman is a different thing from exposing the photograph. What we must appreciate is that there is no right that is totally absolute."

"The fact that you set out to expose other peoples wrongdoing which is beneficial to society, there may be others who may not support that. What is criminal is to suggest that you would reward people who do what is wrong,” the NMC boss noted.
He however added the Police might invite the MP if they have bases to question him over the killing of the journalist.
Ahmed Hussein was shot by gunmen on a motorbike Wednesday night while in his car driving home. He was reportedly shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck.
Anas has confirmed the development on his Facebook wall.
