A dramatic incident occurred in the Accra High Court on Tuesday when Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central, got into a confrontation with Anas Aremeyaw Anas, a lawyer for a private investigator.

Lawyer Sammy Darko instructed Mr. Agyapong to be briefed properly by his (Agyapong's) lawyer when Mr. Agyapong was being cross-examined by him. Mr. Agyapong took offense at this statement according. It implied that he (Agyapong) wasn't a competent witness. Mr. Agyapong then flared up, resulting in the judge intervening to restore order.

An overview of the situation

The lawyer sued the MP on June 20, 2018. He claims Mr. Agyapong defamed him on a live broadcast in Twi on May 29, 2018, stating Mr. Anas was a blackmailer, corrupt, extortionist, and evil.
