Annas take advantage of his anonymity as a tool in his investigative arsenal; this has made him very prominent in West Africa where most of his investigation is based.Just few people have seen his face until an "unmasking" during a BBC interview in November 2015.
He claim to use the mask because of the bad guys as he said " the bad guys will always come after you" thereby protecting him self and his family.
