BREAKING: AKA’s bodyguard famously known as “Dogg,” arrested for murder

Anwar Khan, famously known as “Dogg,” and recognized as the trusted bodyguard of the late South African rapper AKA, finds himself embroiled in a complex legal saga alongside 14 other individuals.

The charges against this group span a wide spectrum, ranging from murder and attempted murder to fraud, corruption, and racketeering, all linked to activities at the University of Fort Hare.

Khan, the proprietor of The Pentagon Group, a distinguished private security agency, had been entrusted with safeguarding AKA, also known as Forbes, during his tenure in Durban. Tragically, AKA met his demise in a fatal shooting incident in February 2023, under Khan’s watchful eye, after eight years of devoted security service.

Dogg’s security expertise extends beyond the realm of celebrity protection, having provided safety for a roster of luminaries including TD Jakes, Michael Jackson, Oprah Winfrey, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, and Kendrick Lamar.

Amidst the ongoing legal proceedings surrounding AKA’s murder, Khan has attended the bail hearings alongside his co-accused. Previously, he voiced suspicions to the South African media regarding the existence of an elusive mastermind behind AKA’s untimely death.

The gravity of the situation was underscored by the presence of high-ranking officials such as Minister Bheki Cele, Commissioner Fannie Masemola, and UFH Vice-Chancellor Sakhela Buhlungu during the recent court proceedings. The accused individuals, including Khan, now face a daunting legal battle, with the weight of the law bearing down upon them.

Commissioner Masemola emphasized the authorities’ unwavering commitment to ensuring justice prevails in cases involving fraud, corruption, and violence at the University of Fort Hare. Efforts to uncover the truth and hold accountable those responsible for criminal activities within the institution remain a top priority for law enforcement.

Confirming the next steps in the legal process, NPA spokesperson Luxolo Tyali announced that the bail application for the accused will proceed on April 11 and April 12. As the wheels of justice continue to turn, the eyes of the nation remain fixed on the unfolding courtroom drama, awaiting the resolution of this complex and deeply troubling case.
