President Nana Akufo-Addo has ordered the arrest of President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwasi Nyantakyi, for defrauding by false pretences and influence peddling.
Nana Akufo-Addo ordered the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to arrest Mr Nyantakyi after being privy to investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 undercover documentary, which exposed the GFA president as using the name of the president for certain purposes.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas has scheduled 6 June to premier the undercover piece which took him over two years to put together.
Meanwhile according to Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako Jr., “There was an attempt to bribe Anas to edit out scandalous findings against “a man” believed to be in the GFA because there is a lawyer in the yet-to-be premiered Number 12 piece.”
“The lawyer took the money and was scared to go and deliver it to Anas. So, eventually, he [lawyer] had to go back to the man and say: ‘[I couldn’t deliver the bribe], take it’. But of course, we have found out. He’s a lawyer, very good lawyer, prominent lawyer”, Mr Baako Jr. said.
The forthcoming exposé will render the careers of some top people in tatters according to Mr Baako.
In a Facebook post accompanying the pre-promo Anas says “Promo for those who want to run to court, no names would be mentioned, but beware “the ides of June would come”. #Number12”
The number 12, therefore, presupposes that the office which is the focus of the latest exposé is likely to be in one of the storey buildings in the capital city and is located on the 12th floor.
Screenings of ‘Number 12”, which is the latest of the investigative journalist, will be done in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Takoradi between June 6 and June 16 to afford residents the opportunity to appreciate the efforts of the undercover journalist whose avowed goal is ‘name, shame and jail’.
He has always maintained that his style is tried and tested and those criticizing it are only entitled to their opinion. More to come…
