John Painstil Sues Songo, Saddick Adams, Others For Defamation

Former Black Stars and Fulham defender John Painstil, has filed a lawsuit against four sports reporters and three media organizations for defamation.

The journalists involved are Veronica Commey, Saddick Adams, Christopher Nimley, and Patrick Osei Agyemang, also known as Countryman Songo.

The other defendants named in the lawsuit are Omni Media Limited, Angel Broadcasting Network, and Multimedia Group. They have been officially notified and given a deadline of eight days to respond and appear in court.

Countryman Songo recently used his Fire for Fire platform on Adom TV to launch a scathing attack on John Paintsil, the newly appointed assistant coach of the Black Stars.

Known for his unconventional style of sports presentation, Countryman Songo wasted no time criticizing Paintsil during the show, making derogatory remarks and directly questioning his commitment to the ‘Save Ghana Football’ demonstration that occurred a few weeks ago.

It is worth recalling that this protest, which commenced at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, witnessed demonstrators marching through the main streets towards Black Star Square.

The protesters were demanding that the necessary actions be taken to ensure Ghana regains its status as a football powerhouse.

Prominent figures such as Saddick Adams (Sports Obama), Patrick Osei Agyemang (Countryman Songo), Collins Atta Poku, and Veronica Commey spearheaded this demonstration, advocating for better management of football in Ghana.
