Member of Parliament for Assin Central Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has threatened to release more damning videos of the late investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale if his family doesn’t stop the “silly” talks.
Kennedy Agyapong made this statement when he appeared on Adom TV’s morning show “Badwem” yesterday where he accused the New Crusading Guide Newspaper which is co-owned by investigative journalist Anas Aremayaw Anas for being diabolic with their publication.
“What have I said that is irritating them? I don’t understand. Nobody can threaten me…something I have not done I will not sit down allow someone to accuse me of it. If they joke I will show more videos of the guy”, he said.
Last Monday, the family of the murdered journalist held a press conference where they called on the government and relevant state institutions to call on Hon. Kennedy Agyapong to refrain from making ill comments about the deceased while investigations are ongoing by the Criminal and Investigations Department.
According to the family, the derogatory comments about Ahmed is causing them pain and will respond in equal measure if he does not stop stating that Mr. Kennedy Agyapong’s decision to place a GH¢100,000 bounty on the heads of Ahmed’s killers is “deceptive” and an attempt to use diversionary tactics “to change the face of the investigations”.
But the loudmouth politician reacting to the press conference questioned why the family of the late Ahmed would unleash their anger on him when he has nothing to do with the death.
“Someone has died he is not an animal that is why I am still calm. Nobody can threaten me by using this useless paper. The man who organized the press conference is foolish. They cannot threaten me because I’m not afraid of them. I will even be forced to bring proper evidence if they go ahead with those baseless arguments. You guys are hailing nonsense in this country” he ranted angrily.
