Anas Demanded $150,000 To ‘Kill’ Number 12 Exposé – Kwesi Nyantakyi

The former boss of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantaky has once again become a hot topic due to his involvement in the controversial Number 12 documentary by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

During an interview with Captain Smart on Onua TV, Nyantakyi disclosed that he paid a staggering $100,000 to Anas Aremeyaw Anas in an attempt to ‘kill’ the damaging story.

Despite Anas initially demanding $150,000 to keep the incriminating footage under wraps, Nyantakyi could only manage to gather $100,000, which he handed over to prevent the revelations from being exposed.

Despite his efforts, the documentary was eventually released, resulting in widespread criticism and Nyantakyi’s subsequent football ban. Nyantakyi also mentioned that he later requested a refund of the bribe money even after the documentary was made public, and the amount was returned to him in installments.

“Before the video was released, his lawyers reached out to me through his lawyer, a certain Kwame Gyan, a lecturer at Legon. I met him at his residence around Westland and gave them the money,” he said in an interview with Onua TV.

“But they told me the amount was inadequate and later went ahead to release 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, the next day another $10,000. They were giving me stories, but eventually I got everything back,” Kwesi Nyantakyi said.

Number 12 was premiered on 6 June 2018 and aimed to expose the extent of corruption within Ghanaian football and its administrators. The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) provided technical assistance for the investigation and obtained the rights to broadcast it worldwide.
