The Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong in an exclusive BBC Africa exposé has revealed how he was emboldened by the support of President Akufo-Addo to launch attacks on journalists.
Kennedy Agypong in the said video said he resorted to using brutal threats and force to intimidate investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas in order for him to have an upper hand over the media space.
He added that Anas Aremeyaw made a mistake by trying to use the media to silence him but with the support of the President, he was able to block him from carrying on with his investigative duties.
He also spoke about Kweku Baako and why the people at the top were and are not ready to render support to him even after the journalist had dragged the maverick politician before the court.
This has culminated into the recent back and forth between Kweku Baako and Kennedy Agyapong with both parties washing each other’s dirty linings in public.
Remember, Kennedy Agyapong has built a kinda controversial reputation for himself for being able to face journalists boot for boot and sometimes threatens to beat them up or inflict them with pain.
This was why a section of Ghanaians called for his head when Ahmed Suale was killed a few days after he had threatened to beat him up mercilessly. Also, just recently, Kennedy Agyapong issued a strong warning to Erastus Asare Donkor of JOY FM and also expressed some level of desire to deal with him.
The exposé is a snippet of a full investigative piece conducted by the BBC which will be made available soon.
