Anas Dissociates From Kwesi Nyantakyi Bribery Allegation

Investigative firm Tiger Eye PI and Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas have dissociated themselves from the bribery allegations spewed by the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi.

It comes after Kwesi Nyantakyi claimed Anas sent his agents in the persons of Adam Munkaila, a football administrator, and Lawyer Kwame Gyan to demand an amount of $150,000 in exchange for discarding the Number 12 documentary-which revealed the rots in Ghana football under his administration- before its release.

Reacting to the statement in a press release, the Investigative firm denied involvement in the demand for the money as it characterised the allegation as “preposterous” and naivety on the part of the 55-year-old.

“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.”

“Mr Nyantakyi’s assumption that such a priceless expose, which had long been advertised by BBC, could be shelved by simply ‘paying’ a $100,000 bribe is not only shocking but 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.”

The statement also noted that Tiger Eye and Anas have exclusively retained the legal representation of CromwellGray LLP way before the production of the documentary and therefore the portrayal of Kwame Gyan, as Anas’s representative in the demand for the bribe is incredible.

It, therefore, asserted, “Tiger Eye P.I. unequivocally asserts that any purported criminal arrangement between Mr Nyantakyi and any alleged lawyer remains solely between Mr. Nyantakyi and the purported recipient. 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.”

“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. 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.”
