President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has ordered the arrest of the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwasi Nyantakyi, for defrauding by false pretenses.
XYZ News Sources indicate the president ordered the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to arrest Mr Nyantakyi after watching part of an investigative documentary by ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas dubbed “Number 12”.
The GFA president is caught on tape telling supposed investors that the president is in his pocket and once they bribe him and his vice, Dr Bawumia, they can do every business they want.
“The president has watched the video and is not happy,” a deputy Chief of Staff, Samuel Abu Jinapor said in a press briefing at the Jubilee House where he confirmed that the president has ordered the CID to pick Mr Nyantakyi for the act.
He said the president who is determined to fight corruption, has asked the CID to commence the investigation.
The video which is yet to be premiered on June 6 2018 is believed to be one of the works of Anas that will shake the country and get sports fanatics wondering because of the rot it uncovers.
The undercover documentary which has portrayed the GFA president as using the name of the president for certain dubious deals, was put together in two years, according to sources.
The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide, Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako, whose protege is Anas, has said the careers and integrities of certain people captured in the yet-to-be released exposé will be in tatters.
On Good evening Ghana on May 17,2018, Mr Baako hinted a lawyer closer to Anas was engaged by a “big man” to get Anas edit a part of the video to favour him.
“There was an attempt because there is a lawyer, and I’m sorry, I won’t mention his name, of course he may know it’s him, maybe he is watching us, who is close to Anas and who knew that this job was going on, and I think he went and did some ‘Okro mouth’, so, somebody now tries to give him money to go and give to Anas,” said Kwaku Baako.
“The lawyer took the money,” he continued, “[but] was scared to go and deliver it to Anas. So, eventually he [the lawyer] had to go back to the man and say’ take it’. But of course we have found out. He’s a lawyer, very good lawyer, prominent lawyer.”
Anas’ team, the Tiger Eye PI, recently dropped a 55-seconds promo which revealed a curvy looking lady in a pink dress, who walked into a story-building and used an elevator to the 12th floor while making a call to an unknown person.
The exposé, though not shown yet, has got some big shots in the football industry shivering, especially as those who are privy to the documentary have hinted it captures some ‘big names’ in the sports industry.
Mr Nyantakyi is in Egypt currently on an official trip while the CID has declared him wanted.
Below is the teaser tells how interesting the investigate piece will be.
