Anas Aremeyaw Anas, the investigative journalist, has spoken about death and whether or not he fears dying with the nature of his job. 

Anas in response to the direct question ‘Are you afraid to die?’ At the Disrupt lab event in Germany, said he was grounded in his faith as a Muslim and conviction on the matter of death.

“Fear, I was purged of fear long ago and I am a muslim, I believe that if you die, you are dead and gone and that it is Allah’s will that you should die.

“And if there is anything I hate, it is that I don’t want to die coward. I want to die fighting for the right things in the society,” he stressed.

Anas type of journalism has often led to threats on his life and on persons close to him.

His team, the tiger Eye PI, is yet to get concrete answers on the death of one of his key investigators, Ahmed Hussein Suale, who was shot and killed in 2019.

The dead came months after the release of the “Number 13” film that posed the rot in football politics at he local, national and continental levels.

Anas work has traditionally been in the area of anti-corruption and human right/social justice.

He has recently hinted that he would release a shocking documentary in January 2024 but has  remained mute on the subject area of the film.

His late release was the second part of a film on illegal small-scale mining, also known as galamsey.
