Police raid Kwesi Nyantakyi’s house
Personnel of the Ghana Police Service have reportedly stormed the house of the president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, for a search.
The search follows Mr Nyantakyi’s arrest by officers of the Criminal Investigative Department of the Ghana Police Service on Wednesday.
Kwesi Nyantakyi, who arrived in the country today from CAF assignments in Morocco and Egypt, went to the CID Headquarters in Accra following a report made by President Akufo-Addo that the GFA boss used his name and office fraudulently.
In a secret audio-visual recording by Anas, titled, “Number 12”, Kwesi Nyanatakyi is heard saying, “I have President Akufo-Addo in my pocket and can secure any contract, it’s just a matter of paying”.
He adds: “Ghana is the easiest place to do business. All you have to do is pay the president $5 million and pay the vice president $3 million and we will control this country.”
President Akufo-Addo reported him on Tuesday, 22 May after having been privy to investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Number 12 undercover documentary.
Meanwhile, the police have assured the public that due processes would be followed in the investigation.
