Níl a fhios ag duine ar bith acu

Why is the preposition ag used twice in this sentence: ag + acu?

Níl a fhios ag duine ar bith = Nobody knows
Níl a fhios ag duine ar bith acu = None of them knows

Edit: I had this in the wrong tense :facepalm: but I've corrected it now.

:yes: The acu in duine bith acu is the acu in cé acu that we discussed in your other thread here the other day.
