Asamoah Gyan loses court case against Anthony Osarfo; slapped with GH¢1 million in damages

In 2019, Asamoah Gyan and his personal manager, Samuel Anim Addo caused the arrest of an entertainment news reporter, Anthony Osarfo who had published the story of one Sarah Kwablah alleging that Asamoah Gyan had sex with her.

Gyan and his manager accused the reporter, Anthony Osarfo, who was then working for the Flex newspaper of following the story to extort money from Gyan.

They subsequently reported Anthony Osarfo to the police. Osarfo was arrested and even though he challenged the complaint, he was prosecuted with three others at the Circuit Court.

On March 20, 2019, before her honour Mrs Afi Agbanu Kudomor, Anthony Osarfo and the three others were acquitted and discharged following the submission of no case.

The Circuit Court said the prosecution was not able to establish prima facie evidence that all the accused persons/applicants committed the offences they were charged with.

The submission of no case by counsel for the accused persons was therefore upheld by the court and they were each accordingly acquitted and discharged.

Suit against Gyan at the High Court and the statement of claim

Anthony Osarfo after being acquitted and discharged, decided to pursue a civil case against Gyan for causing his arrest and subsequent prosecution.

It is that case that judgement was delivered by the High Court presided over by Justice Ernest Owusu Dapaa on Friday, December 8, 2023.

Gyan has been slapped with GH¢1 million in damages.
