Abdul Malik Kweku Baako, a senior journalist and the Editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper has sued the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, for defamation.

Abdul Malik Kweku Baako is seeking reliefs including general damages for libel against Mr. Kennedy Agyapong in the sum of GH¢25million.

In his statement of claim, Kweku Baako states that on July 18, 2018, and several occasions thereafter, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong published several statements against him on Oman FM, Net 2 TV, Adom FM and Asempa FM which are defamatory.

According to him, on certain occasions when the hosts of the programmes on which he made those defamatory comments against him asked him to retract or provide facts to back the claims he [Agyapong] made, he failed to do so.

According to Mr. Kweku Baako, Mr. Agyapong’s assertions have affected his image and reputation in the eyes of “right-thinking” members of the society.

Abdul Malik Kweku Baako is, therefore, seeking the court to order Mr. Kennedy Agyapong to retract his comments and render an unqualified apology to him.

Kweku Baako is also asking the court to place a perpetual injunction restraining Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, his agents, assigns and servants from further publishing any defamatory words against him.
