Anas, Tiger Eye PI hits back at former GFA Capo Kwesi Nyantakyi

Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI has responded to the backlash from former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The known football administrator has been speaking about his ordeal back in 2018 when Tiger PI released Number 12, a football corruption investigation that damaged his reputation in the upper echelons of the sport in Ghana and Africa.

Speaking to Onua TV in an interview, Mr. Nyantakyi said he was contacted by some of Anas’ people to pay the amount as bribe to kill the documentary.

“I was asked to pay $150,000 by his lawyer, Kwame Gyan but after paying $100,000, it was deemed too small.

“So they released the video and I demanded for my money which they paid in tranches.”

Reacting to the allegation, Anas Aremeyaw Anas through his Tiger Eye PI says he is gobsmacked.

In a release, Tiger Eye PI said the admission by Kwesi Nyantakyi proves he is a self-confessed bribe giver and a bribe-taker.

“Mr. Nyantakyi’s assumption that such a priceless exposé, which had long been advertised by BBC, could be shelved simply ‘paying’ a $100,000 bribe is not only shocking but by also indicative of naivety. Tiger Eye underscores its robust internal mechanisms in place, making it difficult for any individual to alter or suppress an investigation.

“Mr. Nyantakyi, by his admission, is a self-confessed bribe-giver, and a bribe-taker for attempting to bribe his way out of a painstaking investigation into his conduct,” the Tiger Eye PI release said.

It added, “Per his self-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.”
