Net2 Tv’s Kweku Annan in hot waters as former IGP serves him writ through substituted service.

“All processes shall remain posted for 10 days,” it directed.
It further ordered for photos of the Bailiff posting copies on the premises of the defendant’s place of work to be taken and included as part of the proof of service of the processes.
In July, the former IGP took legal actions against the TV show host after he was heard saying that;
“Former IGP, David Appeatu’s administration you know these criminals, former IGP David Appeatu you know these notorious criminals whose name I will be mentioning. What did you do and these armed robbers still hide in the confines of our republic? Ghana Police tell me you don’t know that every weekend if you go to places in Kwabenya these Nigerians at night, are engaged in a competition displaying their Mercedes Benz. They also display their guns every Saturday,”
