To hide his identity, he covers his face with mask and beads. For security reasons, he uses different prosthetic faces to help him in his line of duty. One can say his ‘enemies’ keep increasing as they are not comfortable with his style of investigation and this has led to some trying to force him to disclose his identity.
Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has been one of the trending topics in the country for weeks now
The mentor of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Mr Abdul Malik Kweku Baako says his protege remains unshaken by attempts to expose his identity
Reacting to the latest release of such an image on social media platforms, Mr Baako said persons who are bent on exposing the identity of Anas are motivated by a “murderous intent” but his protege was not afraid.
Speaking on ‘NEWSFILE’ on Joy Fm, he said – “There’s no fear in him (Anas), he’s been empowered to the extent not to fear. If you have fear, you will have been neutralised, immobilised, that is what fear does and there is no fear in him. Fortunately, he’s in good company when it comes to people who are not afraid of anything or anybody”.
Mr Baako said he has made a conscious decision not be drawn on questions about Anas’ identity but will interrogate allegations about his operations.
He said he found it interesting that certain persons had chosen to focus on Anas’ identity and have circulated images purported to be the investigative journalist
Mr Baako stressed: “I wonder what the motive is? Because, If it is allegations of corruption, bribery, ineptitude, misconduct all that, that’s fine. Those issues can be made and then we deal with it, but the very moment you are seeking… identify this man, is that him? Is that not him? I won’t do it because I have been questioning the motive and what you seek to achieve with that.
According to him, he finds it very hard and malicious understanding the authenticity of reasons behind such actions on especially social media.
