Investigative jouranlist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has hit hard at critics who have condemned his style of reporting in his investigative pieces.

Anas' previous works, which included exposing several misdeeds and acts of corruption especially people in public offices, have earned him a lot of enemies.

He has always remained anonymous, hiding behind a mask and clothing himself in various forms in order to protect his life from detractors.

Former Attorney General, Martin Amidu has recently questioned the modus operandi of Anas in his investigative pieces.

According to Martin Amidu, Anas should not be allowed to go ahead with his secret recording of people.

Some academicians and other civil society organisations have also said the style and approach used by Anas in his investigative pieces are unethical.

But, speaking on Accra-based Citi FM, Anas said "my style of journalism may not work with other academicians. I know my people better than them. I won't allow other academicians to come and dictate my work for me."

He also wondered why people have not bothered to question the other methods being used by other investigative journalists across the world and their means of getting income for their work.

He added "If my journalism was that bad, why are they (BBC and other media) working with me? Have u asked yourself who sponsors them?"

"In Ghana, we don't have public funding. So if we don't have public funding, I should sit down and keep my skills to myself?, Anas asked.

Anas latest two-year investigative piece, ‘Ghana in the eyes of God’ which involved alleged corruption in Ghana’s judiciary has implicated over thirty judges and magistrates, as well of judicial service staff.
