I paid Anas to kill documentary but… – Nyantakyi

According to Kwesi Nyantakyi, the former president of the Ghana Football Association, he paid investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas $100,000 in an effort to stop the release of the footage that ultimately brought him down.

The 55-year-old was caught on camera, along with a number of other football administrators and officials, seriously undermining the integrity of the game in a June 2018 Anas video investigation.

After resigning from all of his positions with the GFA, CAF, and FIFA, Nyantakyi was subsequently given a lifetime football ban, which was ultimately lowered to 15 years.

The former vice president of CAF, however, claims that Anas only managed to come up with $100,000 despite his lawyers’ demands for a sum of $150,000 to kill the story.

Nyantakyi then revealed that Anas’ lawyers told him the amount was inadequate and the video was eventually released.

“Before the video was released, his lawyers reached out to me through a certain Kwame Gyan, a lecturer at Legon. I met him at his residence around Westland and gave them $100,000,” he said in an interview with Onua TV’s Captain Smart.

“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, and the next day another $10,000. They were giving me stories, but eventually I got everything back,” he said.

Nyantakyi has indicated his intention to contest in the Ejisu by-election following the demise of the Member of Parliament of the area, John Kumah.
