A social media commentator, Kevin Ekow Baidoo Taylor, has been dragged to court for allegedly defaming private legal practitioner, Ace Ankomah.
Ace Ankomah is demanding damages to the tune of GHc10 million.
Joined to the lawsuit is Mr. Taylor’s media firm, Loud Silence Media.
Mr. Ankomah is seeking “damages in the sum of GHc10,000,000 for the defamatory statements published by the defendants on defendants’ Facebook page ‘With All Due Respect – Loud Silence Media’ on 23/07/19 and YouTube on 24/07/19, the subject matter of this suit.”
Mr. Ankomah claimed that, Kevin Taylor, had falsely accused him of being involved in a scandalous deal between the defunct Menzgold Ghana Limited and Horizon Royal Diamonds that resulted in the arrest of Nana Appiah Mensah, Chief Executive Officer of Menzgold Ghana Limited in the United Arab Emirates.
