Award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was mobbed when he visited the Commonwealth Hall of the University of Ghana over the weekend.
The controversial undercover journalist is an alumnus of the University and was a resident of the popular all-male hall Commonwealth Hall, otherwise known as Vandals.
Anas and his crew went back “home” to his University hall over the weekend and were met by a staggering crowd of vandals. Anas storms Commonwealth Hall Vandal City.
Most students were delighted to finally meet the man behind the mask and took turns to take selfies with him. Walking in a trinity, as usual, Anas was cheered by the Vandal student as he walked to take his seat. He later addressed the students on a number of issues, ranging from corruption and his modus operandi.
Anas has won numerous local and international awards following his risky style of exposing corruption and rot. In December 2015, the Foreign Policy magazine named Anas as one of the leading global thinkers, an honour previously granted to the likes of Barack Obama, Aung San Suu Kyi, Pope Benedict XVI, and Malala Yousafzai.

In March 2016, he was also invited by Harvard Law School as a keynote speaker to share his experiences as an international undercover journalist creating change on the African continent. In his latest work, titled ‘Number 12’, the undercover journalist tackled rots in Ghana football.
The exposé captured over 77 referees and officials, including GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi, engaging in various acts of corruption and misconduct.
