'GHC25million is peanuts'; Kennedy Agyapong to Anas' suit

The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has responded to Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ defamation suit against him and said the GH?25million damages he was demanding was peanuts.

According to Mr Agyapong, “that is peanuts…I’ll pay him [Anas] if I lose in court.

Speaking on Asempa FM Friday afternoon, Mr Agyapong boasted that what Anas was demanding was “too cheap.”

He insisted he has evidence to support his allegations and was prepared to face him [Anas] in court since he was not afraid of him.

Mr Agyapong said he was happy about the development because it was falling in line with his plan to "unmask" Anas since in court, he was going to challenge Anas to take off his mask for the case to go ahead.

Ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on Friday filed a defamatory suit against Mr Agyapong.

Anas is seeking reliefs including general damages for libel against Mr Agyapong, as well as aggravated damages arising from some libelous comments published by Mr Agyapong in the sum of GHC25million.
