Ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas has rejected claims he entrapped former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, in his exposé which revealed corruption in Ghana football.
In an exclusive interview with TV3, Anas indicated that Kwesi Nyantakyi appeared experienced in scamming and rather gave him (Anas) vivid tutorials how to scam people.
The embattled GFA boss was captured on camera scheming with the undercover investigators to defraud the Ghana Football Association and to also bribe their way through several contracts to eventually “take over” the country.
He has since resigned as the GFA boss as well as the Vice President of Confederation of African Football (CAF).
FIFA also handed him a 90-day ban from any football-related activities and he has been removed as a council member of FIFA.
After public viewing of the investigative documentary, Mr. Nyantakyi issued a statement in self-defence, denying receiving $65,000 bribe from Anas and threatened to expose him as a fake investigative journalist.
“An investigative journalist does real time investigations and not through contrived scheme of entrapment,” he pointed out in his statement.
