Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has responded to claims by a second wife of Ahmed Hussein-Suale who claims he (Anas Aremeyaw Anas) and Tiger Eye PI had abandoned them after the death of her husband.
MyNewsGh.com reported earlier that the second wife had disclosed that her four children had dropped out of school because they could not pay their fees.
She explained that after Anas Aremeyaw Anas paid for one academic year, he did not pay anymore.
The second wife disclosed that currently, she is perching with her husband’s first wife and they are finding difficulty in feeding themselves as a family.
She denied knowledge of any amount of money paid to the family by the investigative journalist.
But a statement from Tiger Eye PI has denied the allegations stressing that Tiger Eye PI has been paying the school fees of Hussein-Suale’s children since he died.
Tiger Eye PI insisted that a lump sum was paid to the wives of the late investigative journalist through the family and therefore it’s shocking that the wife will make such allegations.
