Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has said that he is innocent of accusations that he is involved in the murder of Abuakwa North legislator J.B. Danquah- Adu.
He has subsequently asked his accusers to provide proof, if any, to back their claims in order for the police to investigate the matter further because the deceased is a high profile person.
“They say I have murdered him (J.B. Danquah -Adu )…Maybe I did it and I was asleep, maybe, it is possible. Let them take this evidence to the police, I think by now we should have been invited so that how I killed him and how he died all that can be tendered in. It is also in my interest that we find out the murderer,” he said in an interview on Thursday 28 June 2018.
He continued: “I have been accused of extortion and all because of Number 12. In four days, what have I not gone through? So, those who speak and [say] he can be bought, he can be this and that, I have gone to the court of law to establish my case” adding, those involved will have their day in court.
The late J.B Danquah-Adu was murdered at his Shiashie residence on 9 February 2016. The hitman gained access to the MP’s bedroom by climbing a ladder.
Daniel Asiedu, (Sexy Dondon), the prime suspect is standing trial for the murder.
Ivy Heward-Mills, wife of the deceased had to write a veiled response to lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong’s insinuation that investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas may have been in an amorous relationship with her even while her husband was alive.
The Assin Central MP threw in the insinuation while making a litany of allegations against Anas in connection with his latest investigative piece Number 12.
Anas’ mentor, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako, had said on Accra-based Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana programme on Thursday, 31 May that the allegation was not worth being dignified with a response, adding that Mr Agyapong was clinging to straw because he was losing the argument.
According to Mr Baako, his protégé and Heward-Mills were mates back at the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and, so, wondered what Mr Agyapong intends achieving with his comments.
However, this has not prevented some critics from alleging that Mr Anas could be involved in the death of the MP.
But Mr Anas maintains that he is innocent.
“Not even one of these accusations will stand, it will come out as falsehood deliberately aimed at tarnishing my image so that people will not believe what I say but let me tell you this no matter what they do, not matter the attempts on my life I will survive this, I will stand the test of time, I will encourage more people…if you take [out] Anas today there will be another Anas tomorrow”.
