Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has said his investigation on former boss of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi was one of the easiest he has done.
According to him, Mr. Nyantakyi rather gave him leads of what to concerntrate on during his investigation on corruption in football for his #Number 12” documentary.
Therefore, Anas said it came to him as a big shock when the former GFA President said he was entrapped.
“We introduced ourselves and said we are the agents who will lead you to this businessman. The man is listening attentively and then he maps up a strategy there and then. Me I had no idea that you can charge the GFA between 20 to 25 per cent. It is the man who told me right there and then…the president of the GFA teaching me how to scam the GFA. That’s exactly what happened.
“So when I hear that we entrapped him, did I force him to say those words? I didn’t force him to say those words. It is his habit. After that he taught me that even the company that, the Mid-Golf Company that we were representing we could also charge them 5 per cent. Did I say that?”
Anas was speaking on Joy FM’s Morning Show Thursday.
He decribed as surprising how Mr Nyantakyi was able to map up those strategies even though that was their first meeting.
“Nyantakyi said those things because he knows it left right and centre. And so he proposed all this and told us that we were going to have our cut in all this. I didn’t say that for him. So those who say that probably he said those things because of the money that he saw… no, after that conversation, when we went to meet the business man, the money didn’t play up but he repeated all these things to the business man.
“It was at the last encounter that the money issues came up and so I felt entrapped by him. That’s how I felt because you are coming to start an investigation that you’ve drawn a long strategy and the man comes out of the airport, your first meeting he’s giving you everything on a silver platter” he said.
