It has emerged that Member of Parliament(MP) for Assin Central Constituency Kennedy Ohene Agyapong in 2019 showed a secretly filmed video to dismissed Minister of State, Charles Adu-Boahen which captured the embattled minister collecting money from a table offered by investigators of Tiget Eye PI disguised as Arabian investors.

The said video which was contained in a recently premiered investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and titled ‘Galamsey Economy’ was reportedly recorded in Dubai on 8th February, 2018.

Following the publication of the content of the video, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo terminated the appointment of Charles Adu-Boahen as Minister of State at the Finance Ministry.

Details are emerging that the maverick NPP MP Kennedy Ohene Agyapong had the video in his possession which he said was intercepted to save the New Patriotic Party from embarrassment.

Speaking on NET 2 television in February this year, the outraged Member of Parliament(MP) in his notable rants said “The party [NPP], they are doing a disservice to me and I’m advising them that anybody who tries disgrace me, the kind of information I’ll bring out from Anas will shock them. The evil Anas wanted to do which is what he does all the time, he was going to show a video which a minister picked money from a table like this”.

Kennedy Agyapong stressed that the secret video recording of the minister and other top government officials and business people was a grand scheme by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

“He [Anas] was not going to show the part where he planned with some people and said this was a political fight in 2018. For a political fight in 2018, who was in power? I’ll not let anybody sacrifice me,” he added.

In what has turned out to be the story of Charles Adu-Boahen, the Assin Central MP in the February 2022 television program said he showed the video to one of the victims of Anas whom he said was a minister.

“As I speak now, I’m just not talking in vague but I have showed the video to the person involved and told him that when you went to Dubai to meet some people, this was what they did to you”. He revealed

It remains unclear, the reasons for the four-year delay in publishing the said investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas as it is suspected that the interception of the video by the MP through a disgruntled member of the Tiger PI investigative team disrupted the process thereby causing the delay.
