A former Attorney General and Minister of Justice and famed political firebrand, Martin Amidu, has thoroughly wrecked the reasons presented by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI for releasing an expose recorded in 2018 only this year.
According to Amidu in his typical bombastic manner, the excuses given by Tiger Eye PI for the delay in releasing the ‘Galamsey Economy’ documentary are “spurious, naive, and untenable, to be told only to the marines.”
He was reacting after Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako, Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, said that Tiger Eye PI could only air their exposé this year because they had lost their only copy of the video they recorded.
“In this information technologic and communications age, no experienced covert investigation agent such as Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI would put all its eggs in one basket by having one original video record after the 8 February 2018 event without spiriting a back-up or pack-ups into the cloud,” Amidu said.
The video recordings of former Minister of State at the Finance Ministry, Charles Adu Boahen, used in the ‘Galamsey Economy’ exposé were recorded in 2018 in Dubai.
After its release, questions about why Anas will use 2018 footage in 2022 emerged and Kwaku Baako explained why.
Kweku Baako’s explanation was contained in a purported response to a Facebook user by the name “Kwadwo Yeboah-Gyan.”
Baako wrote: “Somebody “stole and sold” it to somebody; thinking the evidence had been deleted forever! The “buyer” went out boasting about his possession for years for whatever reason nobody could tell! Apparently, the real “owners/authors” subsequently discovered an extra copy! Today’s story begins from there. PAY ATTENTION!”
In further explanations on the Facebook wall of a pro-Bawumia activist who had also asked the same question of time-lapse in the release of the video, Kweku Baako explained that the same guy (unnamed) who doctored a video of Akufo-Addo allegedly taking bribes in 2016 was the same person who stole the footages in question.
“Same guy who fabricated a video of Candidate Akufo-Addo receiving a donation from a lady supporter of the NPP in his Nima residence in 2016 when Akufo-Addo was not President but tried to make it look as if he was the President!” he explained.
