Investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has said he would not be cowed into 'docility' in spite of threat on the lives of his family.

Anas' previous works, which included exposing several misdeeds and acts of corruption especially people in public offices, have earned him a lot of enemies.

He has always remained anonymous, hiding behind a mask and clothing himself in various forms in order to protect his life from detractors.

His latest two-year investigative piece, ‘Ghana in the eyes of God’ which involved alleged corruption in Ghana’s judiciary has implicated over thirty judges and magistrates, as well of judicial service staff.

Speaking to BBC in an interview, the undercover journalist said he still remains resolute despite threats on his life.

“I’m sure that by now you have heard of the snippets of threats on my family and many other things that are coming up… I know that but I want to assure the people on the African continent who think that they can cow people like us into docility, I’m not one of them,” he said.

"I was purged of fear long ago and I am resolute and focused because I don’t do my work alone; I have a team that supports me in what I do. As far as I am concerned, once there are evil doers in the society we must aim at ensuring that we track them down," Anas added.

About a month ago, one of the aids of Anas was kidnapped in Tamale for assisting in the exposing a judge. He was later released and the hostage takers arrested.

Meanwhile, lawyers for the indicted judges have questioned the modus operandi by the journalist, as several of them have asked that he unmask himself.

The Former Attorney General Martin Amidu has recently described investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, as a criminal and an agent of the State.

According to him, Anas should not be allowed to go ahead with his secret recording of people.
