Anas Confronts Kwesi Nyantakyi Over Bribery Allegations

Anas Aremeyaw Anas has responded to former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss Kwesi Nyantakyi’s accusations of demanding $150,000 to kill evidence of corruption in the Number 12 expose.

Anas refuted the claims on social media, emphasizing that Tiger Eye, his investigative network, is dedicated to uncovering and combating corruption. He dismissed any suggestion that he was protecting corrupt individuals, highlighting the significant resources and dedication put into creating these exposés.

“Tiger Eye P.I. firmly denies any involvement or knowledge of such activities. Should Mr Nyantakyi’s claims hold substance, we challenge him to pursue legal action against Lawyer Kwame Gyan, including lodging a petition with the General Legal Council, to substantiate his allegations,” the statement said in parts.

“Therefore, per his self-confessed bribery attempt, he said the former GFA boss had proven that the life-ban from taking part in any kind of football-related activity at national and international level for conflict of interest and bribery offences provided for by FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE) was justified.

“It is noted that Mr. Nyantakyi appears to be endeavouring to restore his credibility, presumably with aspirations to contest as a parliamentary candidate for the Ejisu constituency under the New Patriotic Party,” the statement added.

“The decision regarding Mr. Nyantakyi’s eligibility rests with the NPP and the constituents of Ejisu. Nonetheless, it’s imperative to emphasize that Tiger Eye P.I. conducted a thorough investigation, leading to Mr. Nyantakyi’s conviction and subsequent ban from football activities due to bribery, conflict of interest,” it added.

Mr. Nyantakyi revealed during an interview on Onua TV that Anas, via a certain lawyer, requested a sum of $150,000 to suppress the story. However, Mr. Nyantakyi was only able to gather $100,000. As per Mr. Nyantakyi’s account, the journalist considered this amount insufficient, leading to the release of the video.

“After the video came out, I asked for a refund and even the refund was done in pieces. Today, they would bring $20,000, and the next day another $10,000. They were giving me stories, but eventually I got everything back,” he said.
