In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM,  Nii Kpakpo said "up to Monday or Tuesday, you will see that we will be bringing up defamation suits that will touch on every single person that has been associated with the said petition, who has republished the defamatory material.”

He added that “republication of defamatory materials itself is defamation, so whether you altered it or you republished it  you should be prepared to meet us in court.

Anas' 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.

One of the indicted judges, Justice Paul Derry has over the past few months sued a number of firms including investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas over the public screening of the video.
