Graphic journalist Daniel Kenu has dropped all assault charges against brother of Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan, Baffour, on health grounds according to an official communication on Blackstars captain Asamoah Gyan’s website.
According to the communication;
“The Kumasi-based journalist told the Kumasi Circuit Court in its hearing on Friday he wants to discontinue the case, in a move that surprised all gathered at the court premises.
Kenu initiated court action against the ex-Ghana striker over an alleged physical assault meted him a day before the Black Stars played its opening 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda.
Two counts of assault charges were also brought against Asamoah Gyan’s business manager Samuel Anim Addo who according to Kenu was an accomplice in the alleged assault.
But the case was struck out after the renowned Graphic journalist told the court he was no longer interested in prosecuting the case any further.
Kenu hinged his reason to drop all charges on health grounds and also adds the court action has made his family – in particular his mother – very uncomfortable.
The accused persons – Baffour Gyan and Samuel Anim Addo – were accordingly acquitted and discharged.”
Hmm, I think I saw this coming as I had been given hints that an alleged GHC40,000 had been agreed on by both parties to trash out the assault case leveled against Baffour Gyan.
What really happened to the stands by the Graphic Communications as they made us understand they would do everything to get to the bottom of the assault case. It’s pathetic that, we pretend to be fighting for colleague journalists but if my information is right, then we need to bow our heads in shame.
