Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper
Maverick journalist and respected Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, who is also mentor to Anas Armeyaw Anas has fired Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party Bernard Antwi Boasiako (Wontumi) for wading into the current issues of Anas and Kennedy Agyapong, when clearly the issues are beyond his thinking capacity.
Mr Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako writing in a comment on social media platform Facebook in reaction to a series of comments about Kennedy Agyapong allegedly releasing an Anas bribe video said Wontumi is “simply a joke”.
Mr Baako wrote “Nana Prempeh Okogyeabour. Tell Wontumi that I say he’s simply a joke! He is entering a territory beyond his comprehension and capability!
Mr Baako went ahead to respond to questions that social media users posed to him under the post in seeking clarity on any issue around the work of Anas.
In responding to an NPP activist, Atick Yakubu about the tape Kennedy Agyapong released, Mr Baako wrote:
“That recording was done by the New Crusading GUIDE investigative team in 2009 ! It was part of the investigative project. And it was also given to the Police investigators. And attached to the docket. Somebody has become a victim of an aggrieved bogus informant!Atick Yakubu . It was on the basis of the investigative project that Hafix and his partners including Mubarak were arrested, charged and prosecuted in court!
What happened in court would be put out in a very comprehensive manner soon. Meanwhile, those who are interested in historical recollection, could check Ghanaweb: 15 and 16 September 2009 for two of Anas’ investigative stories on the matter under reference.” He added.
Ashanti Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi Boasiako has tagged investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas as “corrupt”, saying that he once had cause to pull a gun on the head of the journalist.
Mr Wontumi is accusing Anas of doctoring interviews he has with people, adding that he once pulled a gun on Anas due to his corrupt nature of investigating people, adding that Anas is more corrupt than the “saviour” people perceive him to be.
The politician further alleged that Anas works for former president Mahama and his brother, Ibrahim Mahama.
