Anas was seeking damages to the tune of GH¢25 million in his defamation suit, claiming that a documentary produced by Agyapong titled "Who Watches the Watchman" cast him in a bad light in the eyes of right-thinking Ghanaians.

According to the judge, the evidence that was presented before him proved that people who were able to pay what Anas and his team at Tiger Eye PI would demand were left off the hook and their portions removed from the documentaries that he shows.
