He described a question posed by the BBC interviewer Thomas Naadi about whether he contributed to Ahmed’s death as ‘rubbish’, advising that the journalist should, ‘ask intelligent questions’.

Kennedy Agyapong rendering his disappointment said in twi “BBC too they have gone to make a cheap reportage that I called for his (Ahmed’s) head.”
“They (BBC) are foolish. They are cheapening journalism because they are using Anas’ false information”, he slammed.
The MP who is also the Chairman of Kencity Multimedia continued and said “Look at how CNN broadcasts their news and look at how BBC also broadcasts theirs. As for BBC, they are cheapening themselves”.
“Anas could not have used CNN like the way he used BBC. He is cheapening their reportage because they don’t crosscheck their information before reporting in line with the video Anas released”, he added
