De-Eye Group Limited has sued investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni and the Multimedia Group for defamation for describing it as a “militia” group at the heart of the nation in a recently-aired documentary.

The group, is seeking among others, “A declaration that the first defendant’s publication on Joy TV that the plaintiff, the De-Eye Group Limited, is operating a militia group in the heart of the nation with the complicity of the New Patriotic Party administration is slanderous and defamatory of the plaintiff and same was made without any reasonable, just or probable course”.

Manasseh Azure Awuni, in the exposé, said the “pro-government militia group” has been training at the Osu Castle, a former seat of government, since the NPP administration won power two years ago, with the tacit knowledge of President Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP.

The exposé came in the wake of growing concerns about the rise of party militias and the need for their disbandment in the country.

In the writ of summons dated 13 March 2019, the group is praying the High Court for the following other reliefs:

i. An order of injunction directed at the defendants, agents, assigns, privies from continuing to air the said defamatory documentary which they have described the plaintiff as a militia group operating in the heart of the nation

ii. An order of court directed at the defendants to retract the said defamatory publication and render unqualified apology in the same prominence on Joy TV and four publications in the Daily Graphic

iii. General damages

iv. Compensatory damages in the sum of GHS10,000,000 for loss of reputation against the defendants

v. Costs including legal fees
