Few people can tell you what Ghanaian super-
sleuth reporter Anas Aremeyaw Anas looks
like. “I’m sorry,” he apologized to an audience
during a 2013 TED talk, speaking through a
mask. “I cannot show you my face. If I do,
the bad guys will come at me.” Those bad guys
are numerous: For over a decade, the
internationally-acclaimed journalist has made
it his mission to expose all stripes of
criminals, from seedy outlaws to crooked
cops to rotten public servants. What’s more
incredible is how he’s done it—with inventive
ruses and elaborate disguises that make James
Bond’s adventures seem snoozy by
comparison. We’ve collected a few of his most
memorable busts, along with tips on how he
pulled them off, here.

  1. PEANUT HAWKER
    After earning his degree from the Ghana
    Institute of Journalism, Anas landed a gig at
    The Crusading Guide newspaper in 1999. His
    first scoop stemmed from a simple question:
    If street hawking is illegal in the city of Accra,
    why was it so rampant along one of its busiest
    motorways? The answer lay in a popular
    peanut snack called Nkatie Burger. Anas
    posed as a hawker, hustling the treat to
    motorists stuck in traffic. In the process, he
    learned that cops were taking bribes from the
    hawkers. After seven days of reporting, he had
    his proof, and his story. At TED » , he
    reflected on that first assignment. “I thought
    that I should do it in a different way,” he said,
    “so that it has maximum impact.” The
    statement more or less sums up his career.

Revealed: Why UK freed Nayele Ametefe after serving 3 years of her 8-year jail time

Nayele Ametefe jailed 8 years

Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.

We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.

Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.

The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.

Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.

The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.

According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.

The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.

In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.

She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.

According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.

The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.

She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
