Court has adjourned the famous $2m defamation suit brought against journalists Patrick Osei Agyemang ‘Songo’, Kofi Asare Brako ‘Abatay’ and Multimedia Broadcasting Limited by President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwesi Nyantakyi. The case was adjourned to Wednesday, November 9.
The GFA president filed the suit over comments that had been made against him on radio stations belonging to the company –Multimedia Broadcasting Limited. Nyantakyi’s defamation suit which was opened for hearing today, was adjourned due to the absence of the presiding judge at the General Jurisdiction Court 2.
Kwesi Nyantakyi was reportedly referred to as the ‘head of a mafia’ by the presenters of Multimedia company. The GFA President who considered the comments as defamatory, filed a suit against two of its journalists, Patrick Osei Agyeman and Kofi Asare Brako.
Lawyer to the GFA President reportedly said that his client was described as heading a mafia and stealing money meant for the GFA -comments which is bare untrue and unacceptable. Nkyantakyi’s filing of the suit had drawn a lot of attention from the public considering the amount of money he was suing for. All have waited in anticipation of how the case would unfold, especially as it involved controversial presenter Songo.
The public will continue to wait till November 9, when the case will be re-visited.
Patrick Osei Agyeman also known as Countryman Songo, has been known over the years for his harsh comments against prominent people in the society on ‘Fire for Fire’ programme, which airs on Asempa FM.
Earlier in September, Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan took a swipe at the presenter over some comments he made about him (Gyan). Describing Fire for Fire as a comedy show, Gyan had lambasted Countryman Songo, saying that he has been spewing lies and deceiving the country.
