Ablakwa had insisted that the Kusi-Boateng was hiding under multiple identities, although people close to the reverend minister said they knew him as both "Kusi-Boateng" and "Adu Gyamfi". Others said "Adu Gyamfi" was his house name.

But the GRA's confirmation that the two names have different mothers and dates of birth is certain to be met with more questions from Ghanaians.
