Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, is daring the wife of embattled former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi to drag him before the court of law if he demanded and received an amount of $100,000 as bribe from his husband to stop the screening of his all popular, Number 12 video.
According to reports, the award winning journalist who was speaking at The Press Foundation (TPF) said it was the best opportunity for Mrs Christine-Marie Nyantakyi and her husband to get their pound of flesh wondering why they failed to act.
“Taking bribe is criminal. Assuming without admitting that is me is that not the right time to jail me. Why are you not mentioning the name of the person who asked for the money and who returned it in tranches”, he asked
He wants Mrs Christine-Marie Nyantakyi to credit Ghanaians with some intelligence and not go about making such claims when the security services have mandated to deal with such acts.
It would be recalled that first wife of Kwesi Nyantakyi, Mrs Christine-Marie Nyantakyi alleged that in the lead up to the premiere of Number12 an investigative documentary which has resulted in his lifetime ban from football, reports emerged that Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team were rejected a $100,000 bribe to stop its screening.
She said her husband parted with $100,000 in a bid to stop the screening of the video but it yielded no result.
“Well, there’s information, and there’s truth in that information. Apparently, we became so desperate when we realized that all that they presented to us were false, so we tried to make some interventions, and they proposed that he pays some money. They proposed $150,000; my husband couldn’t afford it, so he gave out $100,000 dollars, and they came back to him and said the person says you need to add $50,000, and he said well, I don’t have it; that’s all that I have.”
“They brought $40,000 first; and then later on, they brought $60,000 dollars. I have not gathered the courage to watch the full video, because the small that I watched, I knew that the way he is talking; that is not my husband; something might have gone wrong.” she revealed.
