Kennedy Agyapong and Net 2 TV's talk show "The Seat" has developed to these previous few months to become one of the programs with the biggest viewership on TV in Ghana today. This can generally be credited to Kennedy Agyapong taking steps to uncover affirmed counterfeit ministers in Ghana for lying and duping individuals to enrich themselves with some viewers labelling the program and its presenters as controversial.
This time round, it isn't about counterfeit ministers however the previous Inspector General of Police (IGP) and a criminological trained professional (forensic specialist), Mr. David Asante-Apeatu, who in his writ expressed to have gotten some harsh comments about him by one of the TV's presenters by name Justice Kweku Annan on this mainstream program.
The previous IGP needs to depend on our legal framework to demonstrate his innocence.
To begin, the immediate past Inspector-General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu, has sued Net-2 TV presenter, Justice Kweku Annan for maligning.
The respondent is the host of the station's famous syndicated program known as 'The Seat'.

What's more, he stated emphatically that Mr. Asante-Apeatu is/was on the payroll of top hoodlums in Ghana, and had wouldn't cause the capture and indictment of these crooks.
Not just that, the TV Presenter blamed the previous IGP for working in cahoots with solidified global criminals to release dread on Ghanaians.
As per the previous IGP, he indicated that the words grumbled from the TV presenter appallingly harmed his standing as a notable resigned IGP of Ghana and a measurable trained professional and caused him public estrangement.
Further, he has been immersed with various calls from proficient partners, writers, social relations and companions and out and out outsiders, and he has needed to address extremely humiliating inquiries".
"The offended party affirms that his words are completely bogus, results of the litigant's creative mind and were mischievously determined by the respondent (Mr. Kweku Annan) to vilify the offended party (Mr. David Asante-Apeatu) and to get him into enmity the eyes of right-thinking individuals about the Republic and the worldwide local area," the suit peruses.
Mr Asante-Apeatu is asking the court for general harms for defamation, disturbed harms emerging from slander distributed by the litigant of the offended party; costs, including legal advisors’ expenses over disparaging remarks made by Mr Annan on June 16, 2021, according to reports.
