A suit filed at the Kumasi High Court by His Lawyers at Holy Trinity Chambers, Adum – Kumasi said the 1st defendant and the 2nd defendant (Multimedia Group and Excellence In Broadcasting (EIB) respectively) on or about 15 January, 2016, caused a publication to be made of and concerning the Plaintiff on its online (internet) website.

Our Ashanti Regional Correspondent, Sampson K.

The Plaintiff (Dr. Amoako Baah) says that all the allegations contained in the Publications are false, and or malicious in that they are calculated to lower him in the eyes of the right thinking members of the community, and or to destroy his reputation.

The Defendants did not check with the Plaintiff about the credibility of the allegation before they caused it to be published.
