President Nana Akufo-Addo has directed the Criminal Investigations Department to arrest the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, for defrauding by false pretence and influence peddling.
The order comes on the heels of the exposé by Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 undercover documentary which exposed the GFA president as using the name of the president for certain purposes.
Last week, Veteran Journalist and mentor of Anas, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako revealed that a well-known lawyer tried to bribe Anas Aremeyaw Anas to edit out a scandalous finding against “a man” in the yet-to-be premiered Number 12 undercover documentary, which will expose a lot of rot at the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The documentary will be shown for the first time at the Accra International Conference Centre on 6 June 2018.
Speaking about the undercover piece, which took over two years to compile, Mr Baako Jr. told Randy Abbey on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana programme on Thursday, 17 May that: “Look, this one, this GFA one, there was an attempt to bribe him, OK”.
He said: “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.
