Dr Stephen Opuni, a former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Cocoa Board (COCOBOD), has sued Multimedia Group Limited (MGL), owners of Adom TV, for GHS10million for defaming him.

Also named in the suit are Daniel Nii Odoi Tutuwani, a producer at Adom TV and Kojo Nkansah Liwin, the host of a parody news program on Adom TV, ‘I can’t think far news’ as second and third defendants, respectively.

The host of a parody news program on Adom TV, ‘I can’t think far news’, was added to the suit for defaming Dr Opuni, the immediate-past Chief Executive Officer of COCOBOD, Dr Stephen Kwabena Opuni.

In the suit filed at the Accra High Court on Tuesday, 24 April 2018, Dr Opuni stated that on the 24th of March 2018 at the hour of 7 pm, MGL, Daniel Nii Odoi Tutuwani and Lilwin published and broadcast defamatory words in a mixture of the Twi and English languages as part of the ‘Don’t Think Far News’.

Dr Opuni weeks ago also sued Daily Guide and its publishers for defamation, seeking GHS2 million in damages. He joined the Editor of the privately-owned paper, Fortune Alimi and a columnist, Yaw Owusu, to the suit. He stated in the suit that the newspaper, in its April 9, 2018 edition, described him as an “incompetent person who has caused COCOBOD to lose almost GHS60 million”.
