Ivy Heward Mills, wife of the late Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, JB Danquah-Adu, has sued the Assin Central MP and eight others for defamation, demanding GHC50 million.

The suit comes few months after the outspoken MP made some comments which suggested that the late MP’s widow was in a relationship with private investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Mr. Agyepong made the comment ahead of the premiering of Anas’ ‘Number 12’ investigative piece which unraveled alleged corrupt dealings in the Ghana Football Association.

The widow, however, took offence in the allegation s and has decided to drag the lawmaker to court over the comments she deem to be defamatory.

Attached to the suit are Kennedy Agyapong’s Kencity Media, Despite Group Limited, Multimedia Group Limited, EIB Group, Joy Daddy Media Group, F-Giant Broadcasting Limited, Apex Media and Ghana Soccernet.

She is demanding damages to the tune of GHC50 million from the MP and the other defendants.

Apart from the money, Ivy also wants the plaintiffs to apologise for the defamatory statements approved by the court and should “be published with the same prominence as the defamatory statements and publications on the various sites or stations that the statements were published and in the Daily Graphic and Ghanaian Times”.
