CEO of Engineers and Planners, Ibrahim Mahama, has sued the Communications Director of the Ghana National Gas Company, Ernest Owusu Bempah, along with the Despite Group of Companies – owners of private TV station UTV, for defamation.

The plaintiff, who is a brother to former President John Mahama, avers that Mr Bempah, on 3 March 2018, appeared on UTV’s morning show and, during a discussion, accused Mr Mahama of being a thief.

In his statement of claim, Mr Mahama said the false comment by Mr Bempah on UTV, has done damage to his reputation as a businessman, and, thus, praying the court to award damages of GHS2 million against the two defendants.

He also wants the court to restrain the two defendants from publishing any such comments about him.
