President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwasi Nyantakyi has sued two controversial sports presenters and their employers, alleging defamation of character.
The GFA boss filed the suit at the High Court in Accra and according to Ghanasoccernet.com, it is against Patrick Osei-Agyemang, popularly known as Countryman Songo, and Kofi Asare Brako, aka Abatay, for consistently defaming his name and character for years on the Multimedia Group owned radio station Asempa Fm.
The Multimedia Group Limited are therefore also party to the suit.
Nyantakyi’s suit says the two have consistently defamed him, thus causing irreparable harm to his reputation and exposing him to public ridicule and scorn.
Nyantakyi’s lawyers have presented over 100 recordings as evidence of the vile attacks visited upon them by the defendants, and have joined Multimedia to the suit for consistently providing the platform for these attacks.
Nyantakyi is allegedly seeking Ghc 8m in damages.
Songo runs a very popular program, ‘Fire for Fire’, which consistently attacks perceived corruption in the GFA whiles Abatay, who is currently at Atinka FM, but used to work alongside Songo and joined in criticizing the GFA.
