Embattled former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kwesi Nyantakyi has revealed that some of his former colleagues in the leadership of the Ghana Football Association paid investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas some Four Hundred Thousand (400,000) Dollars to set him up and destroy him.
According to him, the entire number 12 video was a sponsored work by his detractors to destroy and bring him down.
The Former Confederation of African Football (CAF) Vice President and FIFA Council Member speaking for the first time after the number 12 expose that led to his ousting from the FA, CAF and FIFA said Anas was bribed to undertake the project and that they even came to him and demanded the same amount of 400 thousand dollars from him.
‘’The project that Anas undertook was a sponsored project. They paid him 400 thousand dollars to do that. The money Anas gave to his boys to send to Dubai to trap me, they claim it was 65 thousand dollars and that has to be proven because I received only 40 thousand dollars’’ he said.
Mr. Nyantakyi is standing trial for defrauding by false pretenses.
