Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas insists he has never taken a bride to influence any of his investigative pieces.

To buttress his point, Mr Agyapong on Wednesday screened a 45 minute video at the forecourt of the Kencity Media at the Zongo Junction at Madina to prove that Anas was corrupt.

The video depicted two separate meetings in which a narrator claimed that some of the footages were attempts by Anas to shield certain criminals from facing the law.

But in an interview on Accra-based Joy FM, Anas contended that he has never taken monies to shield any person or group of persons in any of his investigative pieces.

“I have said I have never, get it on record that I have never taken a bribe from anybody to do a story. Why would I? What would I get? That’s why I was the first to go to court to ask the accusers to prove it,” he said.
