By Kweku Antwi Jnr

The Former Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Ibrahim Sannie Daara has slapped Tiger Eye PI and investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas with a GH¢20 million defamatory suit.

Mr. Daara is asking the High Court to award damages amounting to GH¢20 million arising from defamatory materials published by Anas in a documentary on corruption in Ghanaian football titled #Number12.

The GFA Communications Director has also filed another motion for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights at the High Court arguing that the #Number12 video ‘violated the Applicant’s right to the privacy of his communication which is guaranteed by Clause 2 of Article 16 of the Constitution’.

The former BBC journalist argues that the said publication in the #Number12 documentary screened in July across the country put him across as a corrupt, fraudulent and crooked employee of the GFA.
