Anas Exposes Truth Behind Bribery Allegations with Nyantakyi

Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has vehemently refuted any involvement in soliciting or accepting bribes from former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, to suppress the release of the Number12 documentary, which exposed corruption in Ghanaian football.

In a recent interview on Onua TV, Nyantakyi confessed to offering $100,000 to Anas in a bid to prevent the release of the damning video, asserting that Anas initially requested $150,000. While unable to fulfill the entire sum, Nyantakyi’s $100,000 contribution led to the eventual publication of the documentary. He lambasted Anas, suggesting ulterior financial motives behind Anas’ anti-corruption stance and portraying the scenario as a form of blackmail.

However, Tiger Eye P.I. issued a statement firmly denying any involvement in bribery. They dismissed Nyantakyi’s allegations and clarified their legal representation, challenging Nyantakyi to pursue legal action against the purported lawyer involved.

“Tiger Eye P.I. and Anas Aremeyaw Anas categorically deny any involvement in soliciting or accepting bribes from Kwesi Nyantakyi prior to the publication of the documentary. The core mission of Tiger Eye and Anas is to expose and confront corruption, making the notion of shielding corrupt individuals utterly preposterous given the extensive resources and efforts invested in producing such exposés.”

“It should be noted that neither Tiger Eye P.I. nor Anas Aremeyaw Anas engaged the services of a lawyer named Kwame Gyan from the University of Ghana. At all material times, including before, during, and after the production of the Number12 documentary, Tiger Eye and Anas have exclusively retained the legal representation of CromwellGray LLP, situated in Cantonments, Accra. CromwellGray LLP has consistently acted as legal counsel for Anas in matters relating to litigation initiated by or against journalistic publications involving Anas.”

Tiger Eye P.I. firmly asserted that any purported criminal agreement between Mr. Nyantakyi and a supposed lawyer was solely between them and did not involve Tiger Eye P.I.

“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 also highlighted that Kwesi Nyantakyi’s assumption that such a significant exposé, extensively promoted by the BBC, could be halted with a mere $100,000 bribe reflected not only surprise but also naivety.

“Tiger Eye underscores its robust internal mechanisms in place, making it difficult for any individual to alter or suppress an investigation.

“Per his confessed bribery attempt, Mr Nyantakyi has 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.”
